  • First, another opportunity to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter regularly! 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 winter. Running your air conditioner before removing the cover can seriously damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s performance. cut the grass, get rid any debris and remove overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you turn it on this summer. remember to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it clear and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you need it and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Check the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.
