Well, there are a few things to keep in mind that'll help your air conditioning system withstand the menacing heat and humidity summer brings along with it. Summer Heat
  1. Keep the air filter clean. This is one of the easiest maintenance tasks to follow, but we can't even begin to tell you the amount of homeowners who neglect this step and wind up with a breakdown. Set a reminder to check the filter at least once a month and vacuum or replace it as necessary.
  2. Get rid of sticks, leaves and debris from the outdoor unit. This is where airflow is key so making sure there is enough space for adequate amounts to flow through will help your system tremendously. Vacuum up dust and dirt and keep any surrounding bushes or flowers trimmed back.
  3. Heading out for the day? Raise the temperature on the thermostat a few degrees. This will help give your system a bit of a rest during the hottest part of the day. When you get home at night you can adjust it as necessary.
