  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold weather. Running your air conditioner before removing the cover can ultimately damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s performance. cut the grass, clean out any debris and remove overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the area at least monthly to keep it clear and optimize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly. It’s also a great idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you want it and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider installing a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
