  • First, another chance to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace it per the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the cold season. Turning on your air conditioner before removing the cover can severely damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s performance. cut the grass, clean out any debris and clear away overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and optimize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is running efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you want it and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to 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 unnecessary air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
