Air Conditioner Cleaning Tips for Homeowners

dirty air filter

While as a homeowner, cleaning your air conditioning isn’t likely at the top of your priorities, residential services experts know it is essential to a well-working AC. Neglecting your HVAC during the summer months can result in not only a stuffy home that is not as cool and comfortable as you would like but also in higher energy bills and possibly damages to your system.

If you are looking for some ideas to keep your air conditioner as tidy as possible, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some air conditioner cleaning tips that can mean the difference between a sluggish AC and one that performs at its best:

Tip #1: Change the air filter regularly.

Experts recommend changing your HVAC air filter often—typically every month to every three months, depending on your indoor environment. If you have pets, every month will be necessary. Changing the air filter is an easy way to ensure your HVAC can do its job to keep your home cool without getting clogged by dust and debris or shutting down from lack of air flow.

Tip #2: Before cooling season and at the end, clean the AC drain line.

The drain line is where the moisture that gets pulled from the air by your AC exits. If the drain gets clogged, water can begin to accumulate around the house. The water accumulation can lead to rust and can also prevent the proper dehumidification of the air cycling through your HVAC. To keep the air cool and comfortable, cleaning this drain line is important.

Tip #3: Get service from HVAC residential services experts.
