- Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold weather. Starting your air conditioner before removing the cover can seriously damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
- Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s operations. mow the grass, remove any debris and remove overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you start it this summer. be mindful to check the area at least monthly to keep it clear and increase airflow through your air conditioner.
- To provide 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 checked for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you want it and not getting out through gaps.
- Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
- Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.
