It seems too simple to be true, but there are four things you can do when it comes to HVAC maintenance DIY in order to save money, and more importantly, maintain your air conditioning unit during the hot summer months.

  • Change the air filter - you can lower your air conditioner's energy consumption by up to 15% by replacing your disposable filter once per month.
  • Clear the area around the outdoor unit. Keep vegetation, leaves, and debris away from the unit so it is free to pull in air.
  • Clean your indoor vents and make sure there is nothing obstructing its airflow.
  • Adjust your thermostat 4-5 degrees while you are away – doing so will lower your consumption and eliminate unneeded strain on your unit.

 Summer and Winter maintenance from your local HVAC professional is advised so your investment will not let you down when you need it the most!
