Wrong Size Air Filter
There many different types of filters that include various sizes, MERVE ratings, which is the filtering strength, and other different specifications that also can include whether it is reusable or disposable. Before purchasing replacements, consult with your installer or even the product manual to find out what type of filter is right for your unit. Using the right filters is essential for the overall performance and longevity of the HVAC system.
Not Changing Air Filter in House
Depending on the filter, the air filters in your air conditioner or heater trap contaminants like dust, pollen and even bacteria and viruses; as a result, clogs can develop frequently. At least once every 90 days, our experts recommend cleaning or changing your filters. You can increase the frequency of filter changes to once every 30 days should your home be located in an especially dusty area, such as the Las Vegas dessert.
Neglecting HVAC Maintenance
At the very least once a year, HVAC systems require a professional tune-up and inspection, however, every season optimizes the needs of the HVAC system. If you have an HVAC system low on freon, topping off the refrigerant, this should include making minor repairs, changing clogged filters, and other problems.
