Spring is here. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have a few things you can combine that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather heats up in Hattiesburg, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out these tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and frequently missed 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 unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach 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 obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning can help with that to-do list. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be fixed 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.
