A well-maintained cooling system runs more efficiently and uses less energy – which means lower energy bills for you. Schedule time for some routine do-it-yourself maintenance, and you’ll come home to comfort all summer long.
Whole House System
If you have a whole house air conditioner, now is the time to schedule a system inspection by a heating and cooling professional. Before the inspection, remove the air conditioner cover you installed in the fall to protect your unit, and trim away any branches or foliage within 2 feet of the unit.
If you rely on window units to keep your cool, get them out of storage now, before temperatures soar. Remove the cover, and clean out debris – you can use your hands or a shop vacuum. Replace the filter (it’s easy!) before installing the unit in the window; add Air Conditioning Weatherseal to fill gaps around the sides of the unit and at the top and bottom of the window sash.
