How to Remove Dust and Dirt from Your AC

It’s not fun to think about, but there is a lot of dust, dirt, dander, and other debris in our air. For this reason, it is inevitable that it will get into the various parts of your AC unit. This happens to everyone, but it doesn’t mean you can let it go. If you are not diligent about removing it, you may find yourself contacting JD Mohler about Savannah area AC repair more often than you would otherwise need to. This dust and dirt doesn’t just sit there; it clogs the unit and destroys your indoor air quality! With this in mind, we are here to offer some tips on properly removing dust and dirt from your central air conditioning unit:

#1 Change your filter. This first one is easy, and more than likely something you can handle on your own.  It’s generally recommended that filters be changed every 90 days or so. Doing so reduces the type of wear and tear that requires an AC repair to help your system’s efficiency. If you have a disposable filter, it can just be tossed out when it’s excessively dirty and dusty and replaced with a brand new one. It’s that simple!

#2 Clean parts that are easily accessible. A bit of cleaning is all that is needed to help stop the buildup of dust, dirt, and other debris. With the outside unit, you can remove leaves, sticks, dirt, and other nasty stuff. Inside, use a vacuum or dust rags to clean fan blades and other accessible parts after unplugging the unit. If you don’t feel comfortable doing this one on your own, the team at JD Mohler can come perform any cleaning tasks for you. Never put yourself in a situation where you are worried you’ll get hurt or break your AC unit.

#3 Have your ducts professionally cleaned. Dust and debris from your ducts could be affecting how your central air conditioning unit operates. Even the most handy DIY homeowner can’t work on the HVAC unit all on their own. You need your ducts cleaned occasionally, and this should only be handled by a professional. A professional duct cleaning like what’s offered by JD Mohler will boost your indoor air quality as well the overall efficiency of your central air conditioner. When your unit doesn’t have to work as hard to keep you cool, your home is more comfortable and your monthly electric bills are lower. That’s perfect!
