  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the winter. Running your air conditioner prior to removing the cover can severely damage it and cause you costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s functionality. Trim the grass, clean out any debris and clear away overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. be mindful to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it open and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To ensure 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 establish that all that cooled air is going where you need it and not leaving through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
