Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have a few things you can add that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather warms up in Winchester, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating this summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and very often overlooked 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 overlook 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 reattach when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and reduce its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Thornberry Bros Inc can help with that checklist. Having annual 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 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 small investment.
