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 few things that might save you some trouble and keep you comfy in the months to come. The weather is beginning to heating up in East Hanover and the last thing you want is to find out is that you’re in need of AC repair. Going through this short checklist now might save you from sweating this summer. Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts Swapping your air filter makes it to almost all of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often forgotten. If your air filter is filthy, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfortable. This costs you more money and causes more stress on the system which reduces the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often forgotten as well. While you're spring cleaning, remove the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers taken off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and switch them after they've dried. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep any outdoor units cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can impact your system and cause it to reduce its efficiency. Arrange Your Annual AC Tune-Up This is where we enter the picture to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it working at peak efficiency. Spring is the ideal time to arrange 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 small investment into the lifecycle of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change. We can't help you with all of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to be sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to arrange your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 973-884-0065. If you’d prefer, you can also make an appointment with us online.
