There are some air conditioning maintenance steps that you can take on your own. For example, you can remove debris from around your air conditioner and hose your air conditioner down. You can also replace your furnace filters every month or so throughout the summer to keep the air in your home clean. However, you should not open your AC unit up on your own in an effort to inspect it unless you are qualified to do so. Call a professional to do it so you can avoid doing any damage to your air conditioner.
