When you have a home, one of the many things that need to be added to your regular maintenance is changing the filters of the Air Conditioning unit. Many people don’t put a lot of thought into the filters but they should. The filters should be changed once every month and most people can set a reminder to alert them. The filters have a lot to do with the function of your unit.
Air Supply Heating and Cooling has come up with some helpful information on why it is so important:
The filter that is used is made to work as a trap to collect the dust and particles. Although they are collecting the debris, they are made to still allow air to flow through and to be circulated. Each unit is manufactured to allow a specific amount of air to flow through and it can heat or cool that amount of air. When the filter is not changed out and the filter has too much debris on it, it will cause the air flow to be restricted. This means that the unit is working just as hard for a longer period of time. This is because the smaller amount of air will take longer to cool and in turn will use more energy.
Your air conditioning unit is built to run at its top performance. This can only happen when the unit and the other items along with it are taken care of properly. When you maintain the unit; which includes changing the filters, it will allow the unit to last longer. When the filters are left un-changed they can cause the unit to be worked too hard. This can cause the unit to break down faster over time and need more work and repairs done.
When the filters are changed often, the quality of air is better. The air is cleaner and there is less dust that is being sent through the air ducts and into the rooms into your home. Dust, dirt and other contaminants that make it through can cause trouble with allergies and asthma. It can also leave the filter in a better position to grow mold and mildew when left for too long.
