Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Summer is here! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some relaxing summer days. To optimize your comfort and truly relax, ensure your air conditioner is ready for the summer heat. One of the keys to a fun summer in Lake Worth is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While Smyth Air Conditioning Inc consistently recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got numerous tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning this season.

  • First, another chance to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter regularly! Replace your air filter per the manufacturer’s suggestion.
  • Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the winter. Turning on 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 that are close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s performance. cut the grass, clean out any debris and eliminate overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you run it this summer. remember to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and increase airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you need it and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.

These simple steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
