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

Spring is finally here. We’re pretty sure your to-do list already feels overly long, but we have a handful of things that can save you some trouble and keep you comfortable in the months to come. The weather is already heating up in Gresham and the last thing you want is to discover is that you need AC repair. Going through this simple checklist now could save you from sweating this summer.

  1. Check Your Air Filter and Ducts
    Swapping your air filter makes it to almost each and every single of our lists of pointers because it's so important and so often overlooked. If your air filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to keep you comfy. This costs you more money and causes more wear and tear which diminishes the life and efficiency of your system. Your ducts and registers are another piece of the puzzle that is often overlooked as well. While you're spring cleaning, take off the covers from your registers and vacuum inside them. While you have the covers pulled off, soak them in mild dish soap, give them a scrub and replace them after they've dried.
  2. Clean Your Outdoor Unit
    Keep any outdoor units cleared of debris such as grass clippings, leaves or plant overgrowth. This debris can clog your system and cause it to decrease its efficiency.
  3. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up
    This is where we come in to help you take on that to-do list. An annual AC tune-up lengthens the life of your system and keeps it operating at optimal efficiency. Spring is the perfect time to arrange your tune-up so any problems or AC repair that needs to be made can be taken care of before the hot summer months. The cost of a tune-up is a small investment into the lifecycle of your system. Think of it as giving your air conditioner an oil change.

We can't help you with all of your spring to-do list, but we can help you with all things involving your home comfort. We want to make sure you’re cool and comfortable all summer long. If you have any questions about spring cleaning, your system or need to schedule your annual AC tune-up, please give us a call at 503-663-8033.
