Cooling

Summer is here! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some peaceful summer days. To boost your comfort and really relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for the summer heat. One of the keys to a enjoyable summer in Marietta is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While Boyles Mechanical LLC constantly recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got some tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning over the summer.

  • First, another chance to cite the golden rule of HVAC: monitor your air filter consistently! Replace the filter according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Take the cover off your air conditioning unit if you had it covered for the winter. Starting your air conditioner in advance of removing the cover can seriously damage it and cause you costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris placed close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s performance. mow the grass, clean out any debris and eliminate overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it clear and increase airflow through your air conditioner.
  • To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to establish that all that cooled air is going where it should and not leaving through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Check the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.

These easy steps can save you from avoidable air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable all summer long.
