Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List

It’s finally spring. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have a few things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable during the summer months. When the weather gets hot in the Bay Area, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read this checklist to save yourself from sweating this summer.

  1. Examine 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 your home comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then be sure to soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and put them back when they’re dry.
  2. Clear Up Your Outdoor Unit
    Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and decrease its efficiency.
  3. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
    Here’s where Contra Costa Heating & AC can help with that spring cleaning list. Having once a year 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 done 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 nominal investment.

While we may not be able to assist you with all the chores on your spring to-do list, we can provide service to you with all the things that affect your home comfort. We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you want to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 510-343-9841.
