Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Summer is upon us! Many of us are excited for warmer weather and some calm summer days. To enahance your comfort and really relax, ensure your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a enjoyable summer in Racine is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc always recommends staying on track with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got numerous tips to help keep your air conditioner running in the heat.

  • First, another time to remind you of the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter routinely! Replace the filter per the manufacturer’s suggestion.
  • Remove any covering from your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the cold weather. Running your air conditioner in advance of removing the cover can severely damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s performance. Trim the grass, remove any debris and remove overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you run it this summer. Be sure to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and increase airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To get the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly. It’s also a good 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 provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Check the slab your air conditioner unit sits on.

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