Cosco Hawaii, a local family-owned company with more than 58 years of experience, specializes in the wholesale and distribution of air conditioning and refrigeration equipment and supplies. Often mistaken for Costco Wholesale, the company has embraced its name mix-up as a companywide joke; just ask any of its employees, who can share a fun story or two. Along with this playful atmosphere is Cosco’s commitment to family values and providing ample stock and good customer service to all of its customers at all of its locations. Whether you’re on Oahu, Maui, the Big Island or Kauai, stop by one of its stores to learn more about how Cosco can improve the air comfort in your home.

Cosco Hawaii shares these three cooling and ventilation tips:

1. To restore or maintain design efficiency of your AC unit — whether it’s central, mini-split or a window AC — clean the indoor air coil, which will reduce energy costs and air quality hazards in your home. If you are hands-on, Nu-Calgon Evap Foam No Rinse is your best option. If you want someone else to clean your AC, call Cosco for some recommendations.

2. To help prevent bacteria growth and bad odors from forming inside your fan’s coil condensate pan, consider the use of condensate tablets. Nu-Calgon Pan-Treat is a good option to control odor, break down bacteria buildup and other accumulations. Along with being effective, it is also nontoxic and won’t harm the drain pan.

3. Don’t forget to check the air filter. Every two to three months is a good time to check your filter surface for dust, dirt and grime. This buildup not only impacts air quality in your home, but also reduces the efficiency of your unit, causing your fan coil to work harder than it is designed to. Cosco has various filter sizes; if the size you need isn’t among them, the company can have it made.
