First, another opportunity to recall the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter regularly! Replace the filter according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold weather. Running your air conditioner before removing the cover can ultimately damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls. Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s performance. Trim the grass, get rid any debris and clear away overgrowth that blocks your unit before you run it this summer. remember to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it open and increase airflow through your air conditioner. To get the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to ensure 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. Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on. These easy steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable during the warmer weather.
