Tips for Regular Air Conditioner Maintenance

The best time to service an air conditioner is before it needs to be serviced. Regularly maintaining and cleaning your air conditioner is very important to its longevity and efficiency. You should change your air conditioner filter every month to ensure that your air is free of allergens and dust. There are other (more specific) filters than the typical standard but you should consult your local 1-800-HEAT-QUICK air conditioning and furnace technician before installing. Air cleaning and filtration is an important factor of our indoor environment because air filters clean out what the lungs cannot by removing particles, contaminants, vapors and gases from the air. The filtered and cleaned air is then used in heating, ventilation and air conditioning. Air cleaning and filtration should be taken into account when protecting our building environments.

Another important regular task is to completely clean your air conditioning drain. To do this, a high pressure vacuum must be used. Only a trained heating and cooling specialist should perform this task and it should be done on a yearly basis to avoid water damage to ceilings and walls.
