Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and frequently 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 undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore 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, wash them if needed and reattach 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. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Alltemp Comfort Services LLC can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s smart 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 small investment.
