Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have a few things you can do that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in Franklin Lakes, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes unnecessary 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 be sure to 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 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 Total Comfort can help with that spring cleaning list.
