One of the keys to a enjoyable summer in Saint Marys is a dependable, efficient air conditioner. While Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning constantly recommends staying on track 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 recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter regularly! Replace the filter per the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the winter. Turning on your air conditioner before removing the cover can severely damage it and cause you costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s functionality. mow the grass, clean out any debris and remove overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the surroundings 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 running 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 you need it and not escaping through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Take a look at the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.

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