Quick DIY HVAC Tips

Do-It-Yourself Routine Maintenance

Check and change air filters every month. A dirty filter makes your air conditioner work harder and costs you more money on your utility bill.

Your indoor coil should be dusted. Use the soft-brush attachment to your vacuum cleaner to accomplish this task and make sure the coil is dry before you start.

Make sure your outdoor condensing unit is free of any debris--keep grass clippings, leaves, plants, and other items away from your unit. Occasionally you should check the base pan which is located under the unit and remove any debris that has collected.

Be sure the support for your outdoor unit has not settled and caused your unit to become unleveled. If you see that it is not level, you will need to re-level it to keep moisture properly draining out.


Air Conditioner Not Cooling

Be sure your circuit breakers are on and that the fuses have not blown out.

Check your filters, and make sure they are clean and not obstructed by any debris.

Make sure your thermostat is properly set to cool.
