Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Summer has arrived! Many of us are excited for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To optimize your comfort and really relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a enjoyable summer in Litchfield Park is a dependable, efficient air conditioner. While Cooler Tymes LLC consistently recommends staying on track with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner in top shape this season.

  • First, another time to recall the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter routinely! Replace your air filter according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the winter. Running your air conditioner prior to removing the cover can ultimately damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s operations. cut the grass, clean out any debris and eliminate overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you run it this summer. remember to check the area at least monthly to keep it clear and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To get the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a great idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you want it and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit sits on.

These simple steps can save you from avoidable air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
