Scheduling routine air conditioning maintenance is the most important. However, there is one thing that you can do on your own that is greatly beneficial to your AC: changing the air filter therein.

Protect the Condition of Your System
It is much easier to blow through a straw when it is not clogged up with anything, right? Well, the principle is much the same in terms of your air conditioner and its air filter. If your air filter is very clogged up, your system is going to have to work much harder than it should have to in order to distribute air throughout your home and, firstly, through that filter. This additional strain can lead to operational problems if allowed to persist.
Cool Your Home Efficiently
Not only will that extra work leave your system at increased risk of damages, but it will also drag down the efficiency with which your system operates. Cooling your home effectively should not be a cost prohibitive endeavor. If you want to use your system as efficiently as you should be able to, then you must change your air filter as needed.
Prevent Indoor Air Quality Issues
The filter in your HVAC system is there to protect the system and its components from issues with pollutants, not to maintain high indoor air quality throughout your entire home. However, allowing your air filter to clog up can put the air quality at risk. Air may move around the filter, rather than through it, allowing pollutants to do much the same.
