Reminder: Change Your Air Filter Today!
One of the easiest ways to get better air conditioning and a healthier home is to change your air filter! The air filter is responsible for a big task: making sure that big particles don’t come in and damage your AC system. It also cleans the air. And forgetting to clean it has a bigger effect than you may think.
What a Dirty Filter Can Do
Simply by neglecting to clean the filter, you can do a lot more damage to your AC system than you might guess. The main thing to realize is that the fan in your AC system sucks air into the system before it cools it. And first, it must go through the filter.
If the filter is clogged with debris and dirt, you might not get the airflow you need for the system to operate properly. Your airflow was designed to take in a certain amount of air, so the system may malfunction when there is a blockage keeping it from coming through. Problems you may experience include:
- Poor energy efficiency.
- A worn-down AC and heating system.
- Frequent repairs.
- Lack of airflow.
- Lack of cooling.
