Spring has arrived. We know your to-do list is unfortunately 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 heats up in Huffman, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use this checklist to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer.
- Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to pull out the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean 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 restrict your system and reduce its efficiency.
- Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Air Houston Mechanical LLC 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.

We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable during the warm months. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you would like to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 832-777-1521.
