It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can combine that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather gets hot in Winnipeg, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and commonly missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home 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, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
- Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning can help with that to-do list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is 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 minimal investment.
