Filters are a crucial component in your system. The filter helps keep your indoor coil clean by trapping dust, dander, lint, and other particles. The best practice is to check your filter monthly, if its clean leave it for another 30 days, if it is discolored or has physical dirt build up replace it. For most systems a MERV8 - 10 filter is sufficent.
Keep the area surrounding your outdoor unit clean and free of debris. A good rule of thumb is to not let any plants, or bushes grow within a 2-foot radius of your unit. If plants, bushes, or weeds grow too close to your unit, it could interfere with its functionality, leading to lost efficiency and damage.
Having your HVAC system serviced twice a year helps avoid system breakdowns, extends life expectancy, and maintains efficiency.
