Summer is upon us! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To boost your comfort and actually relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a fun summer in Phoenix is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc constantly recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner running in the heat.
- First, another opportunity to recall the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter consistently! Replace the filter 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 in advance of removing the cover can severely damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
- Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s performance. mow the grass, clean out any debris and clear away overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure 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 working efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where it should and not escaping through gaps.
- Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
- Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.
These straightforward steps can save you from avoidable air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
