Trim the grass, remove any debris and eliminate overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you run it this summer. be mindful to check the area at least monthly to keep it open and maximize 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 favorable idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where you want 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 is placed on.
