Do-It-Yourself Air Conditioning Maintenance

These do-it-yourself tips will help your air conditioner continue providing you with cool, comfortable conditioned air.

Clean or change the filter. Filters prevent dust and also airborne pollutants from circulating through the system. Debris settling on coils and in ducts impedes air flow, causing the compressor to work harder. Eventually, the unit breaks down.

Check air vents. Don’t allow drapery or furniture to block air vents. Check joints between ductwork and grilles to make sure that they are well sealed. Most homes lose 30 percent of conditioned air because of leaking ducts.

Keep the outside component shaded and clear of debris. During the winter, leaves and otalso her debris accumulate around the compressor housing. Keep bushes and other vegetation away from the area. Leave the cleaning of the compressor coil to an HVAC professional.
