How Often Should I Clean My AC?

Most homeowners don’t think about it, but it’s essential to clean your air conditioning system from time to time. With proper cleaning, your AC can run more smoothly and efficiently. Cleaning your air conditioner may help prevent system damage and costly repairs down the road, too.

But how often should you clean your AC? And what exactly should you do to clean the system?

Contact ABC Southwest today at (941) 225-2182 to get started on cleaning your AC system.

Replace Your Air Filters Often

Every air conditioning system has air filters that keep the system clear of dust and debris. Over time, however, some material will get through the filters, which could cause long-term damage to your AC system.

A few factors that could cause filters to clog quickly include:

  • Dusty environments: If you live in a dusty area or produce a lot of dust inside your home or office, the air filters will be working harder to catch more debris every day.
  • Low-quality filters: Air filters come in a variety of quality levels. Low-grade filters might not be able to keep up with the amount of dust that arises within a home or office.
  • System usage: If your AC system constantly runs day and night, it will pull a lot more air (and a lot more dust) through the filters.

There are many different filters on the market and many filters of varying quality. Be sure to swap out your air filters regularly and use top-quality filters to maintain your system.

Let ABC Southwest install new, high-grade air filters for your AC by contacting us today.

Clean the Evaporator Coils & Condenser Coils

Air conditioners don’t create cool air. They instead remove heat from the existing air within a home or office. They do this with the help of evaporator coils and condenser coils.

Evaporator coils take humidity out of your property’s air. Condenser coils transfer heat from inside the property to the outside using refrigerant.

These vital parts of your AC system need regular care, especially after a long winter of nonuse. It’s essential to have these crucial parts of your AC cleaned at least once per year, possibly twice if you live in a highly polluted area.

Ensure your AC unit is ready for summer — contact ABC Southwest at (941) 225-2182 to schedule a coil cleaning.
