While B&W Services constantly recommends staying on track with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning in the heat.

  • First, another opportunity to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter regularly! Replace the filter according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold season. Running your air conditioner before removing the cover can severely damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s operations. Trim the grass, remove any debris and clear away overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you run it this summer. remember to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To get 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 ensure all that cooled air is going where it should and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Check the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.

These simple steps can save you from unnecessary air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
