Be sure the area around your air conditioner is cleared. Plants, weeds, and other debris can build up around your air conditioning unit, blocking airflow and leading to inefficiencies. There needs to be a two-foot clearance around your unit, meaning nothing should be growing or blocking the unit in this two-foot area. This is a simple task that can lead to higher efficiency, and reduce the chance of damages and repairs needed to your unit.
The cleaner the better. Wipe down all heating registers, return air vents, your ceiling fans, and your bathroom fans to improve air quality. With air travelling through these areas each day, it’s important to remember to keep these clean.
