  • First, another time to recall the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter routinely! Replace the filter in accordance with the manufacturer’s suggestion.
  • Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the cold season. Turning on your air conditioner in advance of removing the cover can ultimately damage it and cause you costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s operations. Trim the grass, remove any debris and clear away overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you turn it on this summer. Be sure to check the area at least monthly to keep it clear and optimize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to ensure all that cooled air is going where you need it and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.
