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 a few things you can combine that will save you from potential challenges and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather gets hot in Cedar 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 really important and frequently forgotten 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 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 you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, scrub them if needed and reattach when they’re dry. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and reduce its efficiency. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Ilten's Incorporated can help with that checklist. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be completed before summer brings the heat. When you look at the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment.
