To optimize your comfort and really relax, ensure your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a great summer in Englewood is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While TemperaturePro® always recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got some tips to help keep your air conditioner running this season. First, another chance to recall the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter routinely! Replace it according to the manufacturer’s suggestion. Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the winter. 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 placed close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s performance. mow the grass, get rid any debris and clear away overgrowth that blocks your unit before you start it this summer. be mindful to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it clear and increase 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 establish that all that cooled air is going where you want it and not leaving 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 additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable during the warmer weather.
