Keeping your air conditioner running in optimal condition is important to the longevity and efficacy of your HVAC system.
One thing you can do is to change your air filter frequently.
Your air filter is crucial to pulling dust, debris, and other pollutants out of the air that are harmful to breathe and can cause respiratory illness. When your filter gets clogged, it can make it difficult for your HVAC system to circulate the air effectively. Most HVAC professionals recommend changing your air conditioner filters every 30 to 60 days, especially if you have pets. Another benefit of preventative HVAC maintenance is to have your ductwork cleaned regularly. Your ductwork is a haven for dust, mildew, and a haven for other air pollutants to hide, and become disturbed and distributed throughout your home when you run your air conditioner. Most HVAC professionals recommend having your ductwork cleaned every 5 years. One last advantage of preventative HVAC maintenance is that having your HVAC equipment serviced regularly is helpful to the life of your system. Having an HVAC technician come and check out your system regularly will ensure that you are aware of the state of your system. An HVAC technician coming to inspect your system regularly will be able to catch small problems before they become larger issues, which could end up being expensive repairs.
