Time to Change Those Air Filters
October 28, 2016
It’s time to change your air filters! Why is this so important, you might ask? It’s good to know how your AC unit works: To change the temperature in your home, your heating and air-conditioning system draws in air from a room, pulls it over coils to heat or chill it, then forces the tempered air through ducts to the other rooms in your home. Your air filter is responsible for trapping air-born particles that get pulled in with the air and keep them from blocking the blower and clogging up the coils.
Clogged coils can't heat or cool the air passing over them, and they may damage the system. So, the air filter helps your heating and cooling system do its job and keeps it running. Not changing the air filter could mean costly repairs to unclog the system. You can save money and save energy by taking a pro-active role in changing them out yourself or call a trusted HVAC company.
In addition to the mechanical benefits, you’ll also see a change in your air quality. The more particles your filter catches, the less are released into your house. This mean fresher air for you and your family to breath in. It can also make your weekly cleaning routine a bit easier. Less air-born particles means with less dust!
