Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016Spring is finally here. We’re almost sure your to-do list already feels too long, but we have a handful of things that will save you some headaches and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is going to start heating up in Manassas and the last thing you want is to discover is that you’re facing an AC repair. Going through this quick checklist now might save you from sweating this summer. Check Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost every one of our lists of things to check because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is a mess, your system will have to work harder to keep you cozy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which decreases the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are an additional piece of the puzzle that is often neglected as well. While you're spring cleaning, pull off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers removed, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and swap them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units free of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can inhibit your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we step in to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it operating at top efficiency. Spring is the best time to set up your tune-up so any concerns or AC repair that needs to be made can be addressed before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment into the lifespan of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change. We can't help you with your entire spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to ensure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 703-754-1062. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
