As summer approaches in Florida, it is important to perform maintenance on a building’s air conditioner so that the cooled air is healthier.
Tip 1: Clean the Drain Tube
Look for the drain tube on an air conditioner to clean the item thoroughly to eliminate bacteria that can cause a respiratory illness.
Tip 2: Remove the Plants around the Air Conditioner
If you have an exterior air conditioner unit, then remove all of the plants around it to keep pollen from entering a building.
Tip 3: Clean the Air Conditioner’s Coils
Turn off the air conditioner to clean its coils that are covered with household dust and pet hair.
Tip 4: Don’t Keep Clutter around the Interior Portion of the Air Conditioner
An air conditioner will work better when it isn’t hidden behind piles of boxes, and it also improves the quality of the cooled air inside a building.
Tip 5: Change the Air Conditioner’s Filter
You should change an air conditioner’s filter once a month to keep the cooled air fresher and healthier.
