  • First, another chance to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace the filter in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold weather. Turning on your air conditioner prior to removing the cover can severely damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s operations. mow the grass, get rid any debris and eliminate overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it open and increase 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 great idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you want it and not escaping through gaps.
