Spring Cleaning TipsWhile checking off other spring cleaning tasks from your to-do list, try not to forego the air conditioner. Like any mechanical appliance in your home, the cooling unit may break down if left dirty or in disrepair for too long. Here are a few valuable tips to get you started:
- Change out the air filter – As pollens and plants begin to bloom, your allergies may flare up, and indoor air quality is affected.
- Schedule regular service – You should never wait for a heat wave to schedule air conditioning service. Instead, plan ahead and schedule specific times for an HVAC professional to examine your system.
- Check Coils and lines – Even if you have a service appointment scheduled, it’s important to check your coils, drain lines, and drain pans near the air handler. The cleaner system will run more efficiently with these units functioning properly and clean.
