Summer has arrived! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To optimize your comfort and truly relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for the heat. One of the keys to a great summer in Tucker is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While ACS Heating and Air Conditioning constantly recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner running this season.
- First, another chance to recall the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter consistently! Replace it per the manufacturer’s suggestion.
- Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold weather. Turning on your air conditioner prior to removing the cover can seriously damage it and lead to 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 eliminate overgrowth that blocks your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the area at least monthly to keep it open and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
- To ensure 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 make sure all that cooled air is going where it should and not escaping through gaps.
- Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
- Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.
These straightforward steps can save you from avoidable air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
