By now, many of us have given in and turned on our air conditioning (if only to turn it off the past few days because of this cold front). Did you think to check or clean your filter? If not, your air conditioning may not be running as efficiently as possible. Here are a few tips on how to clean your filter:
- Get out the vacuum! The easiest thing to do is take a soft vacuum brush and lightly vacuum your filter.
- Rinse the filter in a sink or bathtub. Use a soft brush to remove any dust/debris. Be sure to let the filter dry before putting it back.
- Use a spray bottle with water diluted by vinegar. This will help kill any bacteria that may have accumulated over time.
- Make sure you are cleaning monthly, this will not only help your air conditioning run more efficiently but also prolong the life of your filter.
We hope this helps! If you need further assistance, we are offering air conditioning checkups, just give us a call at 804-329-1800 or schedule an appointment online.
