Not only that, but you’ll also be overpaying to heat and cool your home. Just because you have an older house doesn’t mean you should put up with drafts or high energy costs. Let our energy efficiency pros help.

Clean Up Around the Outdoor Unit

You shouldn’t ever try to service your air conditioning system on your own. That doesn’t mean that you cannot take some steps to help ensure its successful operation in the coming summer season, though. Simple cleaning up the area around your air conditioner’s outdoor unit is a great place to start.

This is an ongoing process, of course, and you’ll want to keep the system clear of yard debris, grass clippings, etc. as the months pass on. For now, make sure that winter didn’t leave a bunch of tree branches or leaves left over from fall all around the system. Maintain a neat space around the unit to cut back on the risk of operational problems.
