Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Cooling

Summer is upon us! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To boost your comfort and actually relax, ensure your air conditioner is ready for the heat. One of the keys to a fun summer in Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While Innovative Mechanical, LLC constantly recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner running this season.

  • First, another opportunity to recall the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter regularly! Replace your air filter in accordance with the manufacturer’s suggestion.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the cold weather. Turning on 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 that are close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s performance. Trim 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 vicinity at least monthly to keep it clear and optimize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is running efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a great idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to ensure all that cooled air is going where it should and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit sits on.

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