It seems almost too simple, but the most important maintenance task when it comes to the efficiency of your air conditioner system is routinely replacing or cleaning the filter. Why? Because once your air conditioner’s filter gets clogged and dirty, the air simply cannot flow through easily
Your air conditioner has evaporator and condenser coils, and they collect dirt and debris during their months of use – especially if the filters aren’t changed frequently. When the evaporator coils get dirty, airflow is reduced and they lose their ability to absorb heat and reduce efficiency.

Part of your annual maintenance should include clearing out your air conditioning unit’s condensate drain channels. If these become clogged, your unit will not be able to effectively remove humidity. This can lead to excess moisture in your home. Unfortunately, too much moisture can lead to discoloration of walls, carpets, and furniture, and can encourage mold and mildew growth.
Keeping an eye on your air conditioning system's electrical system is also important – issues with the electrical system can cause your AC to malfunction. Your technician will ensure that your system is operating under the correct electric control sequence and that your AC and furnace can’t operate at the same time.
