Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. 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 over the summer. When the weather heats up in Chicago, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and very often missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a good 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 away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where iTemp Heating and Air Conditioning can help with that to-do list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it 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 think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.
