Do You Need a New Air Filter?
One of the most common problems that lead to our AC services are dirty or clogged air filters. Since the air conditioner needs a constant stream of clean air to function properly, if the air filter is dirty, other components will start to fail. Once other components strain to work harder, you will experience numerous issues throughout the system. This is why the air filter is often the first thing we check when diagnosing your air conditioner.
Signs Your AC Filter Needs Replacing
When your AC filter is dirty, you’re bound to notice and it has many negative effects on your AC system and your air and comfort. Not only does a dirty air filter affect the air quality in your home, it can be a trigger for allergy sufferers and asthmatics, making it a serious issue! Having a clean filter that fits properly is more important than many homeowners may believe. Here are signs your AC filter needs replacing:
- Unit isn’t working properly: If your AC unit is overheating, or your AC is blowing hot air when it shouldn’t be, it could be a sign of a clogged and dirty filter. This could damage your AC and also affect your comfort.
- Vents are dusty: Dusty vents are a sign that your AC filter can’t catch any more dust, lint, or other particles. When the filter is clogged, the contaminants start to filter out of the vents and coat nearby surfaces.
- Allergy symptoms triggered: One of the main functions of your AC filter is to keep the air quality in your home high and healthy. If your filter is doing a good job of filtering the air that enters your home, there will be more dust, pollen, and other allergy and asthma triggers.
Changing your AC filter means that you can expect better performance, comfort, energy efficiency, and indoor air quality. Your AC professional from Minnesota Plumbing & Heating will know exactly how often you should change your filters based on your home and needs and will be able to help you choose exactly which filter is right for you.
What are the Benefits of Professional AC Filter Replacement?
Your AC system requires an absolutely clean environment to function properly. It also requires a constant stream of fresh air. The air filter is designed to trap debris before it can enter the unit while also ensuring the system gets clean air. Over time, the filter will start to become clogged and dirty. When this happens, you may notice reduced efficiency or rising energy bills. Additionally, you may experience worsened allergy symptoms since the AC air filter also helps filter out any large dust and debris.
How Often Should You Change the Filter?
Many homeowners change their air filters at least twice per year. However, there are numerous factors that may play into the number of times you change the air filter each year. For example, if you live with smokers, pets, or allergy sufferers, you may want to change the filter more often because your home either creates more debris or members of your family are more sensitive. Some homeowners choose to change their air filter as often as every 60 days!
