Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer04/13/2017Summer is upon us! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To optimize your comfort and actually relax, make sure your air conditioner is ready for the heat. One of the keys to a great summer in Huntsville is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc constantly recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner in top shape this season. First, another time to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter consistently! Replace it according to the manufacturer’s recommendation. Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold weather. Running your air conditioner in advance of 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 impact your AC’s functionality. mow the grass, remove any debris and remove 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 unobstructed and increase airflow through your air conditioner. To get the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts inspected 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 better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on. These straightforward steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
