Uncover your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold weather. Turning on your air conditioner in advance of removing the cover can ultimately damage it and cause you costly air conditioner service calls. Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s functionality. mow the grass, get rid any debris and remove overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you run it this summer.

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 escaping through gaps.
