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

Spring is here. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have some things you can do that will save you from potential issues and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in West Columbia, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Use this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer.

  1. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
    You’ve heard this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely important and commonly 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 undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, wash them if needed and reattach when they’re dry.
  2. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
    Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency.
  3. Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
    Here’s where Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. can help with that spring cleaning list. Having yearly AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s best to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be fixed before summer brings the heat. When you think about the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a minimal investment.

While we may not be able to assist you with all the tasks on your spring to-do list, we can help 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 would like to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 803-265-4208.
