Take the cover off 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 result in costly air conditioner service calls. Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s performance. Trim the grass, clean out any debris and eliminate overgrowth that blocks your unit before you run it this summer. be mindful 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 operating 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 need it and not escaping 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 is placed on. These simple steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
