  • Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the winter. Turning on your air conditioner before removing the cover can severely damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s operations. cut the grass, clean out any debris and eliminate overgrowth that blocks your unit before you run it this summer. remember to check the area at least monthly to keep it open and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To get 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 inspected for leaks to ensure 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.
  • Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit sits on.
