To optimize your comfort and truly relax, make sure your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a enjoyable summer in Macon is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While Air Temperature Control constantly recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got some tips to help keep your air conditioner in top shape in the heat.
- First, another chance to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace your air filter in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation.
- Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold season. Starting your air conditioner before removing the cover can seriously damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
- Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s functionality. cut the grass, clean out any debris and eliminate overgrowth that blocks your unit before you run it this summer. remember 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 working efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where it should and not getting out 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 rests on.
These simple steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
