Air Conditioner Filters
Without a doubt, the most important maintenance task is to routinely replace the AC filter. Don’t believe it?

That’s right, 5% to 15% of extra AC energy is being tacked on to American’s monthly electrical bill. Most American air conditioners are working much harder than they should and it is costing them their hard earned money. Now, I’m sure those energy companies aren’t complaining at all! What ends up happening is dirt and other debris clogs the filter which causes efficiency to decrease substantially. Because of this, normal airflow suffering. A replaced filter will solve this problem and shouldn’t be expensive at all.
Air Conditioner Coils
Fortunately for homeowners, coils don’t typically need to be replaced so it shouldn’t be expensive. The question is, how many homeowners are actually taking the time each year to clean their coils? How many actually know where the AC coils are? Not very many! The AC condenser and evaporator coil will collect dirt through the months and years of running. A quick check every few months, and a quick clean will be very beneficial to those AC coils. The collecting dirt will eventually reduce airflow and insulate the coil. This will reduce its ability to absorb heat and cause your monthly electric bill to increase. Below is a before and after picture of AC coils being cleaned.
It Doesn’t Stop There
