Change Air Filters
The next thing that you will want to do to keep your air conditioning unit working at its best is change the air filters on a regular basis. When our technicians come out for your maintenance appointment they will change the filters but they will need to be done more throughout the year as well. How frequently you need to change your air filters depend on what kind of air filters you purchase and how frequently your air conditioning unit runs. If you have pets you will need to change them more often. Read the instructions on the air filter to see what the manufacturer recommends.
