Summer is here! Many of us are excited for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To boost your comfort and truly relax, make sure your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a great summer in Moline is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While J.L. Brady Company LLC constantly recommends staying on track with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got some tips to help keep your air conditioner in top shape this season.
- First, another chance to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace the filter per the manufacturer’s suggestion.
- Uncover your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the cold weather. Running your air conditioner before removing the cover can seriously damage it and lead to 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, remove any debris and eliminate overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and increase airflow through your air conditioner.
- To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a great idea to have your ducts examined 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.
- Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.
These simple steps can save you from unnecessary air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
