Add AC Repair and Service to Your Spring To-Do List 04/28/2016 Spring is here. We know your to-do list is unfortunately long, but we have some things you can add that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable this summer. When the weather heats up in Portland Metro, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Check out this checklist to save yourself from sweating during the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read 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 house comfortable. Hard work equals less efficiency and extra money. Plus, it causes undesirable wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and put them back when they’re dry. Clean Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and decrease its efficiency.
