At home, there are a number of things you should look at in order to keep your AC unit running smoothly. As homeowners, we often forget the daily tasks that are needed in order to keep our units performing at an optimal level. For this reason, it’s very important that you take note of a few things you can do around your equipment to keep it working the way it should without problems.


Although it may seem to be a redundant task, dusting off the vents and ducts throughout your home can really make a difference. Small amounts of particles build up in your AC system over time affecting the overall quality of air in your home. A great solution to a clean home is to grab a duster and dust off the vents, ducts and fans. Cleaning these areas will not only affect your health but also affects the lifespan of your AC unit.

Outdoor Maintenance

Another great way to maintain the AC system in your home is to keep plants around the home nicely trimmed. This is a great time to make sure your plants are trimmed as we are in the midst of our summer season. South Florida’s thunderstorms are infamous for bringing heavy winds with the potential to send leaves and branches throughout our yards. It’s a great idea to be proactive and regularly check the areas surrounding your AC unit.

These are just a few tips to keep you, your home and your AC system healthy during the 6 month hiatus between your maintenance visits with Aspen Air Conditioning. We offer maintenance plans so we can take care of the technical side of things.
