Spring is here. We know your to-do list is likely long, but we have several things you can combine that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather gets hot in Laurel, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out this checklist to save yourself from sweating this summer.
- Inspect Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen 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 more money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a good 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.
- Maintain Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and impact its efficiency.
- Make an Appointment for Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where H&C Heating and Cooling can help with that spring cleaning list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and keeps it running at peak efficiency. It’s ideal to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done 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 small investment.

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 301-960-3247.
