- First, another time to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace your air filter in accordance with the manufacturer’s suggestion.
- Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold season. Running your air conditioner in advance of 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 lessen your AC’s performance. mow the grass, remove any debris and remove overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and increase airflow through your air conditioner.
- To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is running efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you need it and not getting out through gaps.
- Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
- Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.
