Monthly Maintenance for Your Air Conditioner

Summer Tips

Start this month off right by checking your air conditioner's filter.

Inspecting the air conditioner's filter is a task that should be done every other month, or every month during times of heavy usage. A clean filter will help your unit run more efficiently, and will cut down on the amount of dust and bacteria that are filtered into your home's air.

  • If your air conditioning unit uses a washable filter, remove and scrub the filter with a mild detergent. Rinse it well and let dry completely before re-installing the filter.
  • If your air conditioning unit uses a disposable filter, inspect the filter and replace as necessary.
