Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather heats up in Show Low, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and impact its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Rim Country Mechanical, Inc. can help with that checklist. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it 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 think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment.
