While Anderson Heating & A/C always recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got some tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning over the summer. First, another time to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter regularly! Replace it in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation. Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold weather. Turning on 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 located close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s performance. mow the grass, clean out any debris and remove overgrowth that blocks your unit before you start it this summer. be mindful to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it open and optimize airflow through your air conditioner. To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where it should and not getting out through gaps. Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit sits on. These straightforward steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
