Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold season. Turning on your air conditioner prior to removing the cover can seriously damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls. Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s functionality. Trim the grass, clean out any debris and eliminate overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you turn it on this summer. remember to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it open and optimize airflow through your air conditioner. To provide 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 examined for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you need it and not getting out through gaps. Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Check the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on. These simple steps can save you from avoidable air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
