That white stuff floating around in the air right now can damage/destroy your air conditioning unit

I love spring, but there are definitely things that I don’t like about it. One thing that many people may see every year, but may not know what they are would be the white things floating aimlessly through the air. These are actually Cottonwood tree seed hairs. It can look like snow on the ground if enough of it accumulates. These seed hairs can easily get sucked into the condenser for your air conditioning system and restrict air flow. Restricting air flow can reduce the system’s efficiency and even burn out the condenser. A simple fix for this is to spray the unit down with a garden hose to remove the Cottonwood seed hairs. Here is a link to an article with more information: “Is Your Air Conditioning Unit Clogged With Cottonwood Seeds?”

​Spring is also time to have your air conditioning unit tuned up and filters either serviced or replaced. If you don’t have a service agreement with your HVAC company, be sure to give them a call to schedule an appointment.
