  • First, another time to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter consistently! Replace it according to the manufacturer’s suggestion.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold weather. Starting your air conditioner prior to removing the cover can seriously 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, get rid any debris and clear away overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you run it this summer. be mindful to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it open and increase airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you want it and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider installing a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit sits on.
