Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List

April 28, 2016

It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have some things you can add that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather gets hot in Bartlesville, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer.

  1. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
    You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and more money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
  2. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
    Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and reduce its efficiency.
  3. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
    Here’s where Farris Heating & Air can help with that to-do list. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done before summer brings the heat. When you think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.

While we may not be able to support you with all the items on your spring to-do list, we can advise you with all the things that impact your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you would like to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 918-534-8194.
