Turning on your air conditioner in advance of removing the cover can seriously damage it and result in costly air conditioner service calls.

To get the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleaned regularly.

Consider installing a programmable thermostat to better manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Evaluate the slab your air conditioner unit is placed on.
