While Custom Air Systems Inc constantly recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got some tips to help keep your air conditioner running over the summer. First, another chance to cite the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace it in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold season. Running 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, remove any debris and clear away overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and optimize airflow through your air conditioner. To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is running efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you need it and not getting out through gaps. Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on. These simple steps can save you from unnecessary air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
