Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have several things you can combine that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather gets hot in Scottsboro, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out these tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and put them back when they’re dry. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. can help with that checklist. 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 fixed 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.
