As we swelter through the end of summer, you need your air conditioner to help you beat the heat. With just a little bit of maintenance, you (and your air conditioner) can make it through the dog days of August—no sweat!
- Check your air conditioner’s filters once a month – and clean or replace dirty filters that block airflow. Frost King makes cut-to-fit replacement air filters for window AC units that are easy to install – just cut the filter to the right size and pop it into the unit to keep your unit working efficiently. This simple DIY project is an investment that pays off: According to energy.gov, replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner's energy consumption by 5% to 15%.
- Make sure your window AC unit is installed properly and securely, with air conditioner support brackets that relieve the stress that the weight of an air conditioner places on your window. The Frost King Air Conditioner Bracket can safely support AC units that weigh up to 160 pounds.
- Choose air conditioner accessories that keep the cold inside and help your unit work more efficiently. Frost King’s Air Conditioner Weatherseal is made of highly compressible open cell polyurethane foam that’s easy to squeeze into small gaps and crevices where cold air can leak out and hot air can seep in.
