How can I help my A/C work better?

While a professional air conditioning service technician should undertake the tune-up, you should also do your part to keep your home’s air conditioning functioning smoothly and efficiently with these easy tasks.

When you’re cleaning up your yard, go over to the outdoor A/C unit and clear away sticks, leaves, trash, and other debris from or around it. Trim any landscaping so that there is enough space for the device to work effectively and safely.

Turn on the air conditioner and let it run for about 20 minutes to give it a test. Take careful notes of what you see and hear, as well as what you observed, and let the service technician know.

Upgrade to a programmable or smart thermostat. These can help you save money on your cooling costs by 10% without you having to sacrifice any comfort.
