Spring is here. We know your to-do list is probably long, but we have several things you can add that will save you from potential problems and keep you comfortable over the summer. When the weather gets hot in Oxford, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read these tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer.
- Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts
You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is extremely 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 avoidable wear and tear on your system. People also forget their ducts and registers. It’s a wise 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 put them back when they’re dry.
- Clean Your Outdoor Unit
Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can restrict your system and impact its efficiency.
- Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up
Here’s where Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc can help with that checklist. 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 completed 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.

We’ll help you stay cool and comfortable throughout summer. If you have any questions about your home comfort or you want to schedule your annual AC tune-up, call us at 662-281-1231.
