  • First, another time to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter regularly! Replace the filter per the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the winter. Turning on your air conditioner before removing the cover can ultimately damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s functionality. Trim the grass, get rid any debris and clear away overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you run it this summer. be mindful to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it open and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a great idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where it should and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.

These easy steps can save you from avoidable air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable during the warmer weather.
