Summer has arrived! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some calm summer days. To enahance 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 Grand Prairie is a trustworthy, efficient air conditioner. While Mustang Mechanical constantly recommends staying up-to-date with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner functioning in the heat.

  • First, another opportunity to cite the golden rule of HVAC: Check your air filter routinely! Replace it according to the manufacturer’s suggestion.
  • Uncover your air conditioning unit if you opted to have it covered for the cold season. Running your air conditioner before removing the cover can ultimately damage it and cause you costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can impact your AC’s performance. cut the grass, remove any debris and eliminate overgrowth that blocks your unit before you start it this summer. remember to check the vicinity at least monthly to keep it open and increase 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 great idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to ensure all that cooled air is going where you need it and not leaving through gaps.
  • Consider setting up a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.

These easy steps can save you from additional air conditioning service and keep you cool and comfortable throughout the summer months.
