Spring is here. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have some things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather warms up in Mankato area, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore 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, wash them if needed and put them back 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.
- Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Northern Comfort Inc can help with that to-do list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency.
