Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Summer is upon us! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some calm summer days. To boost your comfort and really relax, ensure your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a fun summer in Crestview is a dependable, efficient air conditioner. While Gordon Air Conditioning always recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got numerous tips to help keep your air conditioner running over the summer.

  • First, another time to cite the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace the filter per the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the winter. Running your air conditioner in advance of removing the cover can seriously damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s performance. Trim the grass, clean out any debris and eliminate overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you turn it on this summer. Be sure to check the area at least monthly to keep it clear and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To get the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where it should and not leaving through gaps.
  • Consider installing a programmable thermostat to help you 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 throughout the summer months.
