When the weather heats up in Williamsport, an AC repair is the last thing you want to worry about. Read our tips to save yourself from sweating throughout the summer. Check Out Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve seen this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and commonly overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep you comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a good idea to pull out 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. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants distant from your outside unit. Debris can block your system and reduce its efficiency. Plan Your Annual AC Tune-Up Here’s where Lycoming Heating Company can help with that checklist. Having annual AC tune-ups extends your system’s life and maintains it so it is 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 minimal investment.
