Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Summer is upon us! Many of us are excited for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To enahance your comfort and truly relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for the heat. One of the keys to a great summer in Suffolk/Nassau County is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While Airmax Long Island Inc constantly recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got numerous tips to help keep your air conditioner in top shape in the heat.

  • First, another time to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter regularly! Replace your air filter per the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the winter. Running your air conditioner prior to removing the cover can seriously 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 performance. cut the grass, get rid any debris and remove overgrowth that blocks your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the area at least monthly to keep it clear and optimize 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 make sure all that cooled air is going where you need it and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit sits on.

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