Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Cooling

Summer has arrived! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some calm summer days. To optimize your comfort and really relax, make sure your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a great summer in Westminster is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While True Heating & Cooling consistently recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got some tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning this season.

  • First, another time to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter routinely! Replace the filter according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the cold season. Running your air conditioner before removing the cover can seriously damage it and cause you costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s performance. mow the grass, get rid any debris and clear away overgrowth that blocks your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the area at least monthly to keep it open and maximize 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 good idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to ensure all that cooled air is going where it should and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider installing a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Check the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.

These easy steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
