  • First, another opportunity to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter consistently! Replace it in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the winter. Running 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. cut the grass, clean out any debris and remove overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you run it this summer. remember to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To get 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 examined for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you want it and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Check the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.
