Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

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 Ronkonkoma is a dependable, efficient air conditioner. While Cool Power LLC consistently recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning this season.

  • First, another time to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Take the cover off 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 result in costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s performance. Trim the grass, get rid any debris and eliminate overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you turn it on this summer. remember to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it clear and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a great idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you need it and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to help you 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 during the warmer weather.
