Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have several things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in Napoleon and Northwest Ohio, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work means less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc. can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is 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 consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
