While you’re dusting, scrubbing, and decluttering, don’t forget about a crucial, yet often overlooked task: A/C maintenance!
A smoothly-running A/C is essential for keeping your home cool and comfortable during Oakland County’s hot summer months. So how can you easily make it part of your spring cleaning routine?
Steps to add A/C maintenance to your spring cleaning:
Replace or clean filters: Dirty filters can restrict airflow and decrease your A/C’s efficiency. Make it a habit to clean or replace your filters every spring. If you have pets or allergies, consider doing this more frequently.
Clear debris: Take a stroll outside and inspect your outdoor A/C unit. Remove any leaves, twigs, or other debris that may have accumulated around it during the winter months. This will help ensure proper airflow and keep your system running smoothly.
Schedule a tune-up: Just like your car, your A/C system needs regular tune-ups to perform at its best. Spring is the perfect time to schedule a professional A/C maintenance appointment with Sun Heating & Cooling. Our expert technicians will inspect your system and address any potential issues before they become costly problems.

Now that your A/C is primed and ready for summer, let’s tackle the rest of your spring cleaning to-do list. Here are some additional tips to help you refresh your home this season:
Declutter: Take the time to sort through your belongings and donate, sell, or toss items you no longer need. A clutter-free home is not only easier to clean, but it can also improve your overall well-being.
Wash windows and screens: Let the sunshine in by giving your windows and screens a good scrubbing. This simple task can make a world of difference in brightening up your home. But after that, you can block the hot sun’s rays out with curtains or drapes, because that would be less strain on your A/C on hot days.
Check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors: While you’re sprucing up your home, don’t forget about safety! Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and replace the batteries if needed.
And remember, if you need help with your A/C system or have any questions, the team at Sun Heating & Cooling in Oakland County is just a phone call away. Happy spring cleaning!
