We recently wrote a post reminding customers that spring is when to schedule air conditioning maintenance. It’s the best way to get an AC ready to face the stresses of summer without mishap, and it also helps save money with energy-efficient performance and a longer system lifespan.
One of the important steps our technicians do during spring maintenance is to change out the air filter. This is one of the few maintenance tasks homeowners can do themselves—and which they will have to do themselves, since the filter must be changed multiple times over the summer. If you’re unsure about how to change the filter, it’s not hard at all: ask us about it during maintenance, and we’ll be glad to show you the steps.
The big question most people have about filter changes isn’t “How do I do it?” but “How often should I do it?”
