While Anderson Heating & A/C always recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning this season.

  • First, another time to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter regularly! Replace the filter in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you had it 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 placed close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s performance. mow the grass, remove any debris and remove overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you start it this summer. be mindful 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 working efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you need it 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 rests on.

These straightforward steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
