- First, another opportunity to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace your air filter in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Uncover your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the winter. Running your air conditioner prior to 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 performance. Trim the grass, clean out any debris and eliminate overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the area at least monthly to keep it clear and optimize airflow through your air conditioner.
- To get the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you need it and not getting out through gaps.
- Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
- Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit sits on.
