It’s springtime and if you live in the South, you’re going to be turning your air conditioner on sooner rather than later.
First things first: change your filter. No, not next week, NOW.
It’s easy. Look to see what size you need. Go to Brookshire’s. Pick one up, then install. It takes 30 minutes, tops, for all those steps.
When you pull your old A/C filter out, you’ll see why replacing the filter at least once a month is important. See all of that gray gunk clinging to the filter? You don’t want to be breathing that in, do you?
In addition, your A/C runs more efficiently when the filters are clean, saving you money.
If you have a permanent filter, you can rinse it in the sink or bathtub, being careful not to damage the metal grating. Let dry and replace!
