Based on what make and model your AC is, the air filter needs to be changed every few months. Some models advise a filter to be changed on a monthly basis, while others can go three months before needing a fresh filter. You should change the AC filter periodically based on the instruction manual to prevent the unit from breaking down, keep energy bills low, and preserve indoor air quality.

Prevent the AC From Breaking Down

Sometimes when we’re called for repairs, we find that the reason the customer’s AC broke down is the air filter was clogged. A dirty air filter can cause multiple problems with the cooling system. Repairs are more expensive than the air filter, so it’s best to keep up with changing the filter. Not to mention, it’s a hassle when your AC stops working and you need to contact a repair company. Controlled Climate Services offers fast cooling repairs, maintenance, and installation in Kennesaw, GA.

Continue Enjoying Manageable Energy Bills

A clogged AC air filter decreases the system’s efficiency, which results in higher energy bills. The debris that collects in an air filter obstructs airflow. With obstructed airflow, the air conditioning system needs to work harder to cool your home. Another necessary step to take in keeping energy bills low is scheduling maintenance once or twice a year.

Maintain Indoor Air Quality

Your AC’s filter plays an important role in trapping pollutants, dust, and particulates to prevent them from entering your home. These air particles can have a negative effect on your family’s health, especially if anyone has respiratory problems. When the air filter is dirty, it does a poor job at preventing particulates from getting inside your duct system and house. These particulates settle on household surfaces and in ducts.
