When the temperature outside warms up, you rely on your cooling system to provide you with instant relief. Your home becomes your air-conditioned oasis. To keep your home at the perfect temperature, you should always perform basic air conditioning maintenance year-round. By keeping your system in top-notch condition, you lessen the chance of your cooling system breaking down and leaving you sweltering. Here are a few basic things you can do.

Change Your Filter Regularly

Many people place their filter in their vents and then forget. However, when you use your air conditioning system on a regular basis, you need to replace your filter every few months. There are quality re-usable filters that you can simply clean and replace whenever you need to. By replacing your filter, you not only improve the efficiency of your cooling system but also significantly improve the air quality of your home.

Visual Inspection

One of the easiest things you can do to maintain your air conditioning system is to conduct a regular visual inspection. Every month, quickly glance over your HVAC and clean up the area around the system. Remove any weeds, overgrowth or debris. Check the condition of your system and notice any changes that have occurred. If you see that something is leaking or out of place, call a professional like Duggan's One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® .
