When A/C units pull in air for their fan coils to cool on your behalf, they have a filter system that cleans that air first. Otherwise, it would be spreading dirty air, which could cause serious problems. This filter should be cleaned every 3-6 months, depending on the brand. Check the label to make sure and then make sure you stick to doing it.
There are sometimes however, when your A/C will need to be cleaned prematurely. For example, if you’re A/C is making strange noises—like pounding, grinding or high pitch squealing sounds—your unit may need cleaning. It could also be broken.
