Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Summer has arrived! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some calm summer days. To enahance your comfort and actually relax, make sure your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a enjoyable summer in West Palm Beach is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While Summit Air Conditioning Inc constantly 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 opportunity to cite the golden rule of HVAC: inspect your air filter regularly! Replace your air filter per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold season. Starting your air conditioner before removing the cover can severely damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s operations. Trim the grass, get rid any debris and eliminate overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the area 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 running efficiently, have your ducts maintained 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 want it and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.

These easy steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable during the warmer weather.
