Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have several things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather gets hot in Colorado Springs, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out our tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read 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 home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a good 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 replace them 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 restrict your system and decrease its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Mitchell Heating can help with that to-do list.
