When the weather heats up in Zelienople, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is so important and frequently forgotten by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also overlook their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to take off the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you can soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants at a distance from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and impact its efficiency.
