Getting Your Air Conditioner Ready for Summer

Summer is here! Many of us are ready for warmer weather and some calm summer days. To boost your comfort and truly relax, make sure your air conditioner is ready for the summer heat. One of the keys to a enjoyable summer in Las Vegas is a reliable, efficient air conditioner. While Polar Air & Heating Inc consistently recommends staying current with annual preventive air conditioning service, we’ve got several tips to help keep your air conditioner running in the heat.

  • 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 it was covered for the cold weather. Turning on your air conditioner before removing the cover can severely damage it and lead to costly air conditioner service calls.
  • Plants, leaves, tall grass and debris located close to your outside unit can lessen your AC’s performance. Trim the grass, remove any debris and remove overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you start it this summer. Be sure to check the vicinity 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 working efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts inspected for leaks to make sure all that cooled air is going where you want it and not getting out through gaps.
  • Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner.
  • Check the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.

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