After a long, wet winter, Mother Nature is apt to deliver a nice, warm summer. Saving fuel (and money) means it’s time to clean the filters in your air conditioning system before firing it up for the season. For optimum efficiency, the US Department of Energy recommends cleaning filters every two months, with continued use.

• Replace filters every one to three months or if you have washable filters, clean them monthly for best results unless you want to repair air conditioning units every month.

• Clear the space around your outside A/C unit. Remove weeds and debris leaving a 2-foot clearing around the unit.

Saving energy and reducing one’s carbon footprint is at the center of discussion for many right now. New technology is delivering better efficiency than ever and taking part can be as easy as updating your home’s heating and air conditioning system.
