Summer is upon us! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some calm summer days. To enahance your comfort and actually relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a great summer in Troy is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While Edington Heating & Cooling Inc constantly recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning over the summer.
- First, another opportunity to cite the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace it per the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold weather. Starting your air conditioner in advance of removing the cover can ultimately damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
- Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s operations. mow the grass, clean out any debris and clear away overgrowth that blocks your unit before you turn it on this summer. Be sure to check the area at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
- To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a great idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to ensure all that cooled air is going where it should and not escaping through gaps.
- Consider installing a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
- Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.
These straightforward steps can save you from unnecessary air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable during the warmer weather.
