There are many things that you can do yourself to help your air conditioner run at its best. Maintaining your air conditioning system can help you prevent breakdowns, save energy and cool your home more efficiently.
- If your condenser is located on the ground, clear out any plants or debris that may obstruct airflow. You can do this with a water hose.
- Change your air filter at least once a month when you are using your air conditioner.
- In humid climates, double check the system’s drain to make sure that it is draining properly.
- Don’t forget to schedule your annual maintenance, especially before the season starts. Scheduled maintenance can help make sure that everything is running properly and at maximum efficiency. This can help save you energy, which will lower your bills and prevent any disrupting breakdowns.

I wanted tot hank you for this advice for maintaining an air conditioner. It’s good to know that you should double check the system’s drain if you are in a humid climate. I’m interested to learn if you should try to check once a week or even test the drain to make sure it’s working properly.

I liked that you pointed out that it might be smart to find a good humid climate control system on your HVAC system. I didn’t realize that you need to check if the humidity system is draining properly. As well. It might be best to get a professional to check that it is working properly.

Thanks for the suggestion to replace air filters at least once a month when using the air conditioner! My husband and I are thinking of having a new air conditioner in our home since we’ve had the current one for almost two decades. Hopefully we can find a great service in our area who can help install a new unit and teach us how to replace the filters!
