While Arrings A/C & Heating constantly recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner running over the summer. First, another time to cite the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter regularly! Replace your air filter per the manufacturer’s instructions. Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold weather. Running your air conditioner prior to 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 reduce your AC’s functionality. Trim the grass, clean out any debris and clear away overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you turn it on this summer. be mindful to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and increase airflow through your air conditioner. To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you want it and not leaving through gaps. Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Check the slab your air conditioner unit rests on. These simple steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable during the warmer weather.
