- Have your outdoor unit cleaned: by having a technician clean your outdoor unit it will help unclog any areas currently clogged with dirt, debris and pollen from the outside air. Once your unit is properly cleaned it will be able to efficiently transfer the clean air in your home. If your unit is clogged it will make it that much more difficult to provide your family with clean air!
