Give Central AC & Furnace at Least 2 Feet of Clearance
Ensure the appliances, both inside and outside, your furnace and air conditioner should have at least 2-3 feet of clearance from all clutter and debris. Avoid allowing any type of clutter to pile up around it and trim back the trees, weeds, grass, and bushes. In addition to causing potential damage, landscaping and clutter promotes filth and pests. Maintaining a clear area can reduce the dirt and debris, pest damage and other type of damage from occurring.

The air filter is one of the most crucial pieces to the HVAC system. Trapped in the filter, the collection of the debris, dirt, dust, pollens, allergens, and contagions. The air cannot pass through the clogged filters and cause damage to the system over a short time. To make sure they are properly replaced, check the filters monthly. Ensure they are changed regardless if you know that haven’t been replaced in 2-3 months.
