When the weather warms up in Santee, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating this summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and very often missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and impact its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Aireforce Heating & Air Inc can help with that spring cleaning list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment.
