Spring Cleaning for Your Air Conditioning System

Tomorrow is the first day of spring! If your cooling system has gone unused over the past few months, now's the time to clean it up and look for potential issues. Let's go over spring cleaning tips for your air conditioning system:


1. Replace the filter

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, "The most important maintenance task that will ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner is to routinely replace or clean its filters." Dirty filters are easily clogged, and an obstruction of air flow can decrease the efficiency of your system. Plus, switching out that old filter for a clean one can lower your air conditioner's energy consumption by 5 to 15 percent!

2. Clean all vents

A high efficiency cooling system can't work to its full potential if your air ducts and vents are dirty. Duct cleaning, even in a new home, can result in lower energy bills and a cleaner indoor living environment. Rusk Heating & Cooling offers expert duct cleaning, so the air circulating inside your home is clean, conditioned and filtered properly.

3. Check freon levels

If your air conditioner is older, freon (or other refrigerant) levels could be low due to leaks. Allow us to inspect your system for proper freon levels. This will ensure that your home stays cool all spring and summer long.
