Be sure to check the area at least monthly to keep it open and maximize airflow through your air conditioner. To ensure the best air quality and that your air conditioner is operating efficiently, have your ducts cleared out regularly. It’s also a good idea to have your ducts examined for leaks to ensure all that cooled air is going where it should and not escaping through gaps. Consider putting in a programmable thermostat to provide assistance to manage the efficiency of your air conditioner. Check the slab your air conditioner unit rests on.
