To enahance your comfort and actually relax, make sure your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a great summer in Greenville is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While Ken Parker Service Inc consistently recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner running this season. First, another opportunity to recall the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter regularly! Replace the filter per the manufacturer’s recommendation. Uncover your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the cold weather. Turning on your air conditioner before removing the cover can seriously 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. mow the grass, remove any debris and remove overgrowth that obstructs your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it open and increase airflow through your air conditioner. To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is running efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a favorable idea to have your ducts inspected 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 help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on. These easy steps can save you from avoidable air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
