As summer draws near it is a good time to inspect your air conditioning units before the need to use them arises. Simple maintenance and inspections can save money and add years to the AC unit.

For example changing the filter is the most overlooked regular maintenance item that can also be the easiest way to prolong the life of the AC unit and keep it running efficiently.

Clogged Air Conditioner filters can lead to lost cooling capacity because the clogged filter reduces the air flow through the system, meaning that you’ll feel less air flow at the supply registers than was previously present. This also will increase the operating cost that is required to keep the living spaces cool above what it would cost to replace the filter.
