Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Summer has arrived! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To optimize your comfort and really relax, make sure your air conditioner is ready for the summer heat. One of the keys to a enjoyable summer in Moline is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While J.L. Brady Company LLC always recommends staying on track with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got numerous tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning in the heat.

  • First, another time to cite the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter consistently! Replace your air filter according to the manufacturer’s suggestion.
  • Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the cold season. Turning on your air conditioner before removing the cover can ultimately damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s performance. Trim the grass, remove any debris and remove overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it open and increase airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you need it and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Check the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.

These easy steps can save you from unnecessary air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable during the warmer weather.
