Why You Should Clean Your AC System Filter
If you’re the kind of home owner that faithfully hires a qualified HVAC technician to clean and inspect your AC system and filter each year, you’re in the minority.
Surprised? We are too, especially since most heating and cooling system repairs can be prevented with regular system maintenance. But even that can’t offer you all the protection you need to avoid system problems or breakdowns.
That’s why self-maintenance is so important to help keep your AC system at peak operating efficiency for as long as possible. And the most important thing you can, as a home owner, is to clean or replace your system filter roughly every two months. It varies from house to house and system to system, but once it becomes a habit, you’ll know the maximum amount of time you can wait before cleaning or replacement becomes necessary.
Here’s what maintaining a clean AC filter can do for you:
Cleaner Indoor Air
When conditioned air passes through a dirty filter, much of that dirt, dust and bacteria ends up being blown into your living spaces. By cleaning your filter regularly, you’ll be helping to clean your indoor air at the same time. And that’s great news for anyone in your family with allergy or asthma problems.
Improved Energy Efficiency
When a filter is clogged, it makes your AC system work harder to deliver as much conditioned air as it takes to keep your home at the desired temperature setting. That means greater energy consumption, and higher energy costs – nothing that a clean filter can’t fix!
Reduced Wear & Tear
When your system works harder to keep you cool, sooner or later that will catch up with you in the form of more frequent repairs and a shorter system lifespan. By contrast, a clean filter helps your system run better and last longer, and that can save you a bunch of money.
As you can see, ongoing AC system maintenance is partly our responsibility, and partly yours. Today, Comfort Air is ready to do our part with our preventative maintenance service. So, if it’s been a year or more since your system was last professionally serviced, why not call us now.
