Remember to Change Your Air Filter Regularly This Summer

When the heat of the summer season is at its most intense, you need to know that you’ll be able to cool your home with the efficiency and reliability that you desire and which we know you deserve. If you’re wondering how you can go about seeing to it that this is the case, then answer is simple: AC maintenance. Dial our number today, and schedule the outstanding air conditioner maintenance services that your system needs to succeed. Remember too, though, that there are a few things that you can handle on your own. Simply remaining diligent in changing your air filter regularly can help you to keep your air conditioner functioning at peak performance and efficiency levels.

Why Do I Have to Change My Air Filter?

I schedule routine air conditioning maintenance in Des Moines, IA, you may be thinking, so why should I have to also change my air filter? Well, the answer is simple. Your air conditioner filter must be changed with far greater frequency than your system as a whole needs to be tuned up. You likely have your air conditioner maintained once a year, as well as your heating system. Even if these systems share an air handler and air filters, twice a year just isn’t going to cut it when it comes to chaning those filters. Refer to your system’s literature in order to determine when your filters should be changed, but remember that certain environmental factors, such as pets in your home and overall cleanliness, may make your particular change-out needs more frequent.

If you do not change your air filter regularly enough, it is going to clog up. Not only does this lead to increased airflow resistance, which can drive up the cost of running your air conditioner while also putting unnecessary strain on the system, it can also lead to issues such as the icing up of your evaporator coil. Trust us when we tell you that changing your air filter as needed is one of the simplest ways to protect the integrity of your AC system, as well as the overall quality of its performance.
