Check Heating and Cooling Systems


Schedule an annual tune-up for your heating and cooling system. Clean or change air filters and remove dust from around grills and ducts. Outdoor air conditioner condensers need attention now, too. Disconnect the power from the condenser and clear away any leaves and debris with a vent brush or power blower. You can minimize problems with debris by wrapping fiberglass mesh around the condenser coil; just be sure to regularly check and replace the mesh as needed.

If you have window air conditioning units, remove the covers and clean the filters. Make sure they're running properly before the hot weather arrives.
