Don’t forget to “Spring Ahead” this Sunday March, 11th. At 2am we will all set our clocks ahead one hour. Daylight Savings is also a great time to d0 some routine checks around your home.
- Replace batteries in your smoke alarms and other battery powered devices, and check them for proper functionality.
- Check your medicine cabinet for outdated prescriptions.
- Clean out your refrigerator and freezer.
As the winter ends and spring weather starts we also advise a thorough inspection of your Air Conditioning system. When is comes to maintaining a well functioning AC system, there is nothing more important than making sure that you keep to a regular maintenance schedule for your air conditioning system. This will include both simple tasks that you can perform yourself and a more in-depth annual cleaning and inspection that will be carried out by an air conditioning professional.
Keeping up with this kind of maintenance is helpful in many ways. It keeps your air conditioning system functioning at the highest possible efficiency level, and it also reduces the chances that you’ll need emergency repairs in the future. And since both of these benefits save you money in the long run, it’s well worth the small investment to have someone come out to take a look at your system once a year.
These professional maintenance visits typically include a thorough inspection to check for leaks, wear and defects throughout the system. In addition, a full coil cleaning is generally included. On your own, however, you can also do things like clean out the vents once a month and make sure you change the filters on a regular basis.
