Why It’s Important to Change the Air Filters In Your AZ Home
The Fountain Hills area gets hot, hot, hot during the summer months. Your home AC works overtime to keep you and your loved ones cool and comfortable. And when the temperatures outside are maxing out the thermometer, let’s face it, we’re staying inside more than we’re not. We also tend to have windy, desert conditions, creating dust that makes its way into our Fountain Hills area homes. Between the amount of time your air conditioning runs and the dust in our environment, having clean air filters in your AC system is very important.
What’s the Big Deal of Changing Your Air Filters?
Seasonal climate changes often result in dust and debris entering ventilation systems and air conditioning units all year long. Outside, debris and even pests can get into your outdoor unit and cause malfunctions or worse. Making sure your system is cleaned and properly maintained is key to having a consistently comfortable indoor environment. Your part in maintaining the optimal performance of your AC is making sure your air filters are clean. This allows air to freely flow through the system and be as pure as possible as it’s distributed throughout your home.
If the AC air filter isn’t changed regularly, your system’s efficiency is greatly diminished, leading to increased energy usage. Eventually, it will affect the overall operation of the unit resulting in repairs and possible higher maintenance costs. Keeping the air filters clean is an easy common- sense way to help your HVAC system stay in the best condition possible and work longer for you.
Change Your Air Filters Frequently
Along with a thorough pre-season cleaning, this is the perfect time to replace your air filters. The professionals at Shadrach Plumbing & Cooling recommend changing filters at least every three months, if not more often. For example, if you have family members with allergies, asthma or if you have multiple pets inside your home, changing your air filters every 30 days is a better option. Dust, dander, pollen and other airborne particles can be dispersed throughout your home if the filter is clogged, possibly affecting the general health of the occupants.
