  • First, another time to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter regularly! Replace it according to the manufacturer’s suggestion.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the winter. Running your air conditioner prior to removing the cover can ultimately damage it and cause you costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s operations. mow the grass, remove any debris and eliminate overgrowth that blocks your unit before you turn it on this summer. remember to check the area at least monthly to keep it clear and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is running efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to ensure all that cooled air is going where you want it and not leaving through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.
