The Importance of Air Conditioning Filters

Your air conditioning system was a large investment and keeping it running efficiently without the need for costly repairs is important. One of the most simple things you can do to accomplish this goal is to change your air conditioning filter regularly.

The filter removes particles from the air stream to keep the air conditioning system clean and also to remove harmful particles from the air. As the filter does its job, it becomes loaded with particles and becomes less efficient. This means a reduction in cool air flow and an increase of dirty air in your home.

If you have family members with allergies or pets that shed, this can be a major, sometimes life-threatening, issue. When your filter is clogged with particles, it can actually become a source of pollution in your home. In addition to filters, other add-ons such as ultra-violet systems can purify your air even further.

How often you need to change your filter depends on how much you use your air conditioning system as well as the age of the system. If your system is not producing as much cold air as normal, this is an indication that there is a problem and your filter may need to be changed. It’s also an excellent idea to have a professional remove direct and obstructions from the coils and drains of your air conditioning system at the start of the cooling season. Preventive maintenance is an excellent way to ensure that your system is running at peak efficiency.
