Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Cooling

Summer is here! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some peaceful summer days. To boost your comfort and truly relax, make sure your air conditioner is ready for the summer heat. One of the keys to a great summer in Marshfield is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While House of Heating Incorporated consistently recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got some tips to help keep your air conditioner in top shape in the heat.

  • First, another opportunity to cite the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter regularly! Replace the filter per the manufacturer’s suggestion.
  • Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold season. Turning on your air conditioner in advance of removing the cover can seriously 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 operations. mow the grass, remove any debris and clear away overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you turn it on this summer. Be sure to check the area 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 running efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to ensure all that cooled air is going where you need it and not leaving through gaps.
  • Consider installing 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 easy steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
