How Important is a Clean Air Filter?

Air Supply heating and Air Conditioning assists the homeowners and business owners of the Greater Las Vegas, Nevada area with a number of air conditioning troubleshooting services including when a dirty air filter is involved. Playing an essential role in the operating system; the air filter does much more than clean the air circulating through your home or business. Changing or cleaning, depending on the type, is only one of the important steps required to properly maintain the air conditioner. Clean filters promote energy efficiency, air conditioner performance, and help you avoid issues as well as minimize the need for repairs.

Clogged Air Conditioner Filter Symptoms & Problems

Las Vegas, Nevada and surrounding area homes and businesses that neglect the air filter responsibilities can experience any of the common problems:
1) Short-Cycling: The air conditioner is designed to cycle on and off here and there throughout the day, however, when the filter is excessively dirty. The cycling becomes more frequent than necessary. In addition to increased energy consumption, you will experience noise pollution, and uneven and uncomfortable temperature adjustments.
2) Freezing AC Unit: A clean filter contributes to the freely flowing air within the unit. When the filter is compacted with dirt and debris, the airflow is restricted; causing the cool air to build up, thus the internal temperatures to drop; over time the buildup will eventually form ice on the coils.
3) Unbalanced Cooling: Before the freezing coils and during, the restricted air flow prevents the air conditioner from functioning at its full potential, resulting in uneven cooling where hot and cold spots can be felt in the home; lowering the comfort levels and increasing the operating cost.
4) Allergens: Respiratory issues, such as allergies, asthma, or other problems can especially be impacted by filthy air filters. The allergens easily buildup in the filters and linger, continuing to contaminate what little of the air flow cycles through. In addition to the filters being riddled allergens, the air ducts will begin to accumulate with the allergens, including mold spores, introducing mold into the air ducts.
5) Wear of AC System: When properly maintained, including the mundane filter cleanings, the air conditioner has an increased lifespan. A well maintained filter will stop the dust from settling on the internal components where as a clogged filter will permit the granules to settle on the surface, expediting the wear and tear by up two years.
6) Poor AC Efficiency: Saving the few bucks and resisting the need to change the filters impact the cost later down the road. Not only will the energy bill rise, but the air conditioner will not operate at peak performance, and continually try to compensate.
