Remember to Change Your Air Filter Regularly This Summer

California is a very special place to be during the summer season. It can also be an uncomfortable hot place to be, as well, though. That is why you absolutely must have a dependable, effective air conditioning system installed in your home. However, you must remember that simply investing in a great air conditioning system is not enough to guarantee your comfort. You must also ensure that your system is well-maintained so that it functions with the efficiency and reliability that you deserve. Mostly, this just boils down to scheduling routine air conditioning maintenance in Fresno, CA with a member of our team. You can help out your own cause, though, by being diligent in replacing your system’s air filter.

Why Must I Change My Air Filter?

Your air filter does not really serve to improve the indoor air quality throughout your home. Instead, it is used mainly to protect your air conditioning system itself from the many different problems that dust, dirt, and other debris accumulating in the system can lead to. This may include an increase in airflow resistance, which can drive up energy costs as the quality of your system’s performance plummets. Decreased airflow over your evaporator coil can also lead to that coil freezing up, which can seriously impede the cooling process while also putting a lot of strain on your system. Plus, a clogged air filter can lead to pollutants bypassing the filter altogether, in which case your indoor air quality can and will decline.

When replacing your air filter, you make it easier for your air conditioner to do its job. However, you must be careful to use the right air filter for your particular system. If your filter is too efficient, you may experience problems similar to those caused by a dirty air filter. Refer to your system’s literature when choosing your air filter, and contact us with any questions that you may have.
