Here in New England, we may not have as many hot, humid days as the folks down South, but we do like to stay comfortable. A properly running, efficient air conditioning system is a welcome relief on the days we do need it. There’s nothing worse than turning on your AC for the first time and finding that it doesn’t work. A few preventive measures on your part can reduce the chances of that ever happening to you.
Tired of lugging those heavy AC window units around twice a year? Think there is no other way to air condition you home, short of installing duct work? We have good news for you. Ductless air conditioning system called "mini-splits" can be installed on multiple levels of your home for comfort on those hot and humid days.

Here are some basic tips to prepare your air conditioning for the season:
- Make the sure outdoor condensing unit is not covered or blocked before turning on your AC. The unit needs to draw air from outside into the system. The process is hindered if the AC cannot pull enough air from outside to cool and distribute through the house. Clean obvious obstructions such as trash and leaves from around the exterior of the unit.
- Run your AC for a few minutes before you need it. If you wait until the first hot day to discover it isn't working, you may be waiting quite a while for the busy AC specialist to get to your house for repairs.
- Change disposable filters or clean electrostatic and electronic filters regularly. Dirty filters restrict airflow, reducing efficiency and increasing the likelihood of the evaporator icing up.
- Make sure the thermostat is set in the cooling mode. Merely setting the dial below room temperature will not activate the air conditioning if it is set in heat mode.
- Have the unit professionally serviced annually.
