Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List

April 28, 2016

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 this summer. When the weather warms 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.

  1. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
    You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and very often forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house 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 good idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and put them back when they’re dry.
  2. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit
    Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and reduce its efficiency.
  3. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
    Here’s where Scott Temperature can help with that checklist. 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 done before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment.

We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable during the warm months. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you would like to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 785-269-0465.
