Your air conditioner filter is an integral part of your home’s HVAC system. This filter protects your air conditioner, furnace, and ductwork from dirt, dust, and other airborne particles. Changing your filter should be part of your regular air conditioner maintenance plan. To change the filter, remove the cover on the air intake vent, which is usually located near your thermostat or the base of your air handling unit. Remove the old filter and put the new one in place, taking care to align it properly. You can view a step-by-step tutorial for changing your air conditioning filter in this video.
In addition to changing your filter, remember to schedule an HVAC inspection and AC tune-up at least once a year with your Orlando home AC service. Regular air conditioning service will help prevent the need for HVAC repairs and prolong the lifetime of your equipment to ensure your home remains comfortable all year long.
