When the weather heats up in Lawrence, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read 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 more money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to 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 distant from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and reduce its efficiency.
