Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels a mile long, but we have a handful of things that can save you some trouble and keep you cozy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Bloomington and the last thing you want is to discover is that you need AC repair. Going through this short checklist now might save you from sweating this summer. Look at Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost each and every single of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often left unaddressed. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you more money and causes more work on the system which decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, take off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers taken off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and switch them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency. Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we enter the picture to help you work on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it working at optimal efficiency. Spring is the ideal time to set up your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be taken care of before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the lifespan of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change. We can't help you with your entire spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to be sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 812-332-9100. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
