  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s performance. mow the grass, clean out any debris and remove overgrowth that blocks your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the area at least monthly to keep it clear and optimize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To ensure 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 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 provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
