Change Your Filters

No one enjoys a stuffy home. Dust, dirt, and pet dander could be the culprits! Changing filters should be on everyone’s spring cleaning list to provide the best airflow throughout your home as spring temps heat up. For optimal performance, replace filters every 3-6 months. Not only do fresh filters help indoor air quality, but they also prevent your air conditioning system from overworking, helping avoid higher utility bills.

Clean Your Garbage Disposal

Whether you use your garbage disposal regularly or not, it’s best to give it an occasional thorough cleaning. Although food scraps may seem to disappear into “no man’s land,” buildup can cause clogs with particles, grease, and food over time. After a deep cleaning, use citrus fruit peels to freshen up the garbage disposal. Cut up limes, lemons, and oranges into small pieces and grind them down the drain for an instant fruity scent that lasts for days! If you need more than a deep cleaning, call the experts at Falcon HVAC for drain-clearing services.
