Fall weather is making an appearance, and soon, it will be time to stop using your AC. That means it’s time to contact your local AC company to schedule an AC maintenance appointment. You’ll also want to take care of a few tasks yourself to save you from future repair costs.

1. Change Your AC Filter

Your air conditioner depends on a clean filter to help it keep your indoor air flowing properly. A clogged filter can cause your equipment to work harder. In turn, this can mean more frequent repair issues. At the end of the summer season, replace the filter before shutting down the air conditioner.

2. Remove Debris

Check your outdoor unit for leaves, trash and grass clippings that have fallen into or around the equipment. Brush away the debris, and get rid of it according to your city’s disposal policy for yard waste. A broom or a leaf blower makes this an easy task.

3. Inspect Ductwork

Inspect the outside of your ductwork to locate any leaks. Look for tears or punctures in the insulation. Check for any breaks in connections or exposed surfaces. Holes can appear due to pests, general wear and tear and the age of the materials. Leaks in the ductwork can make your energy bill increase unnecessarily. Schedule a duct cleaning service to remove any interior dirt buildup.
