Tips from Toby – Avoid AC Repair Calls
Last week was the first time many of us fired up our AC's this season and that resulted in thousands of emergency calls all over the city. Almost 80% of those calls could have been avoided (along with the expense) by doing a few simple tasks to keep your air conditioning system running smooth all season long. From checking that filter to cleaning off the outside coils and much more, we show you the quick, easy things you can do to keep your AC running cool and efficiently all Summer long.
DIY AC Essentials
The hot month of August is here and, despite a mild Summer, there's more heat on the way. To keep your AC system running smoothly and cost effectively - it's time to do some easy system maintenance to avoid a breakdown.
Cleaning your outside condenser unit, trimming back shrubs and changing your filter are essential right now. There's a ton of lint and grass that blocks air flow on the outside and dirty filters on the inside. Watch the tip now, you'll be more comfortable, avoid system breakdowns and stay cool the rest of the Summer!
Spring Home Inspection
Between last year's drought and the heavy snowfall we've had there are a bunch of things around the outside of our home that need a Spring inspection. From checking your downspouts and even gas meter there has been a lot of damage from soil movement and the expansion and contraction from temperature changes. Now is the time to do a home check up and make sure you don't have any little problems that could turn into big - costly issues down the road.
