Air Conditioning Tips

Seasonal Tips for Summer Comfort for Your Air conditioning systems and filter replacements.

Summer can be tough on your system, which is why it’s important to start the season off right.

“Air conditioning performance is a direct result of how well you take care of the unit during the peak summer months,” said Paul Trotter, brand manager for American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning. “With the proper upkeep, you can expect your air conditioner to last for 10 years or more—and consistently perform at its peak throughout its life.”

“One of the most important ways a homeowner can actively contribute to extending the life of his or her air conditioner is to have a yearly inspection prior to each cooling season. This will guarantee that the unit is prepared to work properly and at maximum efficiency.”

In addition, take a walk around your yard. If trees or other plants shade your home, make sure that leaves and sticks are regularly cleared away from your air conditioner.
