Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Cooling

Summer is here! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some peaceful summer days. To boost your comfort and truly relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for the summer heat. One of the keys to a great summer in Kennesaw and surrounding areas is a dependable, efficient air conditioner. While Total Comfort Solutions consistently recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner in top shape in the heat.

  • First, another time to cite the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter regularly! Replace your air filter per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if it was covered for the cold season. Starting your air conditioner prior to removing the cover can seriously damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s performance. Trim the grass, get rid any debris and remove overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you run it this summer. Be sure to check the area at least monthly to keep it open and increase airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where it should and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider installing a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.

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