  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s performance. Trim the grass, clean out any debris and clear away overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the area at least monthly to keep it open and maximize airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating 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 want it and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to help you manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
