Summer has arrived! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some calm summer days. To optimize your comfort and actually relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a fun summer in Hodgenville is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While Phelps Heating & Cooling constantly recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner in top shape over the summer.
- First, another time to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter regularly! Replace your air filter in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the winter. Turning on 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 functionality. mow the grass, get rid any debris and clear away overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you run it this summer. Be sure to check the surroundings 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 operating efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a great idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you want it and not escaping through gaps.
- Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
- Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.
These easy steps can save you from avoidable air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
