Changing Air Filters: Simple But Crucial to Your AC

Although you can’t complete all of the necessary AC maintenance tasks on your own, you can change your air filters. How often the air filter needs replaced depends on what make and model you have. However, you should stay on top of air filter changes because it helps maintain proper airflow, keeps air cold, prevents high energy bills and removes pollutants from the air.

Maintain Proper Airflow

You can prevent AC airflow problems by changing the air filter as needed, even if you don’t think it’s dirty when it comes time for a replacement. The cooling unit will struggle to circulate air throughout the system when the filter is full. As more dirt accumulates inside the system, the cooling process will become more difficult. You may find it too hot when the AC has weak airflow.

Keep Air Cold

Many people experience the problem of an AC blowing hot air throughout the home. After double-checking to ensure that your thermostat is set to cool, you should change the air filter. What’s the connection between the air filter and hot air? Clogged air filters can cause the compressor to overheat. Your AC may need a repair if it has gotten to this point because overheated compressors can damage other parts of the system.

Prevent High Energy Bills

When you have a sudden increase in your energy bill, your air filter is a likely culprit. Clogged air filters cause your cooling system to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the home. This leads to more energy usage

Remove Pollutants from Your Air

The air filter is essential for removing pollutants from your indoor air. Without a clean filter, you’re going to have dirty air circulating through your home. It puts you at a higher risk of respiratory and other health problems. Without proper filtration, the air inside your house can be more polluted than the air outdoors.
