Cooling

Summer has arrived! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To optimize your comfort and truly relax, ensure your air conditioner is ready for the summer heat. One of the keys to a fun summer in Osceola County is a dependable, efficient air conditioner. While Osceola Air, LLC consistently recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got some tips to help keep your air conditioner running this season.

  • First, another time to cite the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace it in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold weather. Turning on your air conditioner before removing the cover can severely damage it and lead to 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 blocks your unit before you turn it on this summer. remember to check the area 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 ensure all that cooled air is going where you want it and not leaving through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Check the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.

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