Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Summer is upon us! Many of us are eager for warmer weather and some peaceful summer days. To optimize your comfort and actually relax, confirm your air conditioner is ready for summer’s hottest days. One of the keys to a fun summer in Williamsport is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While Lycoming Heating Company consistently recommends staying on track with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got numerous tips to help keep your air conditioner running this season.

  • First, another chance to cite the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter routinely! Replace your air filter according to the manufacturer’s recommendation.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the winter. Running your air conditioner before removing the cover can ultimately damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris that are close to your outside unit can reduce your AC’s operations. Trim the grass, remove any debris and clear away overgrowth that blocks your unit before you turn it on this summer. remember to check the area 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 cleared out regularly. It’s also a great idea to have your ducts checked for leaks to make sure 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.
  • Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit sits on.

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