Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can add that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather warms up in Carlsbad, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating this summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and commonly 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 undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a wise idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and put them back when they’re dry. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services can help with that to-do list. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency.
