When the weather heats up in Raceland, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips 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 missed by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your home comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and additional 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, clean them if needed and reattach 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 restrict your system and reduce its efficiency. Schedule Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Guidry's Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Service can help with that spring cleaning list. Having once a year AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and helps it stay running at peak efficiency. It’s smart to schedule your tune-up in early spring so any AC repairs can be done before summer brings the heat. When you consider the value of the life of your system, the cost of a tune-up is a small investment.
