Message from Amherst Green

Councilmembers

Spring is just around the corner. Now is a good time to schedule a tune-up for your lawn mower. It’s a service at most Amherst hardware stores, or something that can be done by the homeowner (instructions on many DIY websites). According to manufacturer Briggs & Stratton, a tune-up can increase fuel economy by a third, extend the life of the engine, reduce repair costs and decrease emissions by up to 50 percent. It’s also a good time to get ready for summer and schedule a tune-up for your Air Conditioner. Homeowners can make a window unit more efficient by cleaning the filter and exhaust panels, dusting the interior fins, and making sure that the outside drain hole is unclogged. For whole house units, annual service is recommended by the manufacturers. Air flow is key to the operation of the AC unit. Make sure you include the area around the AC during your spring cleanup around the yard. The unit needs to be free of debris. Plants and any other obstructions should be at least 1 foot away for maximum airflow. This maintenance can save you 5-10% on your cooling bills.
