Examine Your Air Filter and Ducts You’ve read this here before. Changing your air filter is really important and frequently overlooked by homeowners. A dirty air filter makes your system work a lot harder to keep your house comfortable. Hard work equates to less efficiency and additional money. Plus, it causes unnecessary wear and tear on your system. People also tend to ignore their ducts and registers. It’s a great idea to remove the covers from your registers and vacuum them. Then you should soak the covers in mild dish soap, clean them if needed and replace them when they’re dry. Maintain Your Outdoor Unit Keep debris like grass clippings, leaves and plants away from your outside unit. Debris can obstruct your system and decrease its efficiency.
