Get To Know Your AC System:
You don’t have to become an AC expert, but you should know the basic parts of your AC system. Make sure you know where all parts are located and the main components which need maintaining.

Change Air Filters Regularly:
AC air filters keep the air in your home cleaner and prevent debris buildup on AC parts, thus helping the AC system run more efficiently. AC filters should be changed before they start looking dirty. Look at the manufacturer’s recommendations for the type of air filter you have. Generally, they need to be changed about once every 1 to 3 months.
Are You Blocking the AC Unit?
Make sure there isn’t anything blocking the AC unit, such as foldable chairs you propped against the unit, leaves, shrubs, or debris.
Clean Condenser Coils:
Condenser coils must be kept clean. You can clean this yourself using a wet vacuum to remove any debris which has fallen around it. If the coils require a chemical cleaning because they are very dirty, then have a professional do this during your yearly maintenance.
Check Drain Pans and Drain Lines:
Drain pans and lines should always be kept clear of debris, algae, and mold. If they become clogged, you could have serious water damage problems on your hands! You can clean these yourself or have a professional do it.
