Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have a few things you can combine that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather warms up in Wisconsin Rapids, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use 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 missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a nominal investment. While we may not be able to help you with all the chores on your spring to-do list, we can help you with all the things that influence your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you are ready to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 715-421-5555.
