Trim the grass, clean out any debris and remove overgrowth that impedes on your unit before you turn it on this summer. remember to check the surroundings at least monthly to keep it unobstructed and increase airflow through your air conditioner. To provide the best air quality and that your air conditioner is working efficiently, have your ducts maintained regularly.

Consider installing a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.
