You’ve probably invested thousands of dollars in your air conditioning system. But if you’re like most people, you don’t spend a few more changing your filter every month it operates – and that’s a big mistake.

When an air filter clogs, it reduces airflow into your home – which means your A/C has to work harder to do its job. Over time, an over-taxed cooling system will cause all kinds of problems for you, including:

  • Higher bills – Dirty filters can add 20 percent to your monthly cooling bills, costing you hundreds of dollars during the year.
  • Poor air circulation – Blocked by a clogged air filter, your A/C will circulate less air – which means your home won’t be as cool.
  • Costly repairs – A dirty filter can cause your air conditioner’s cooling coil to freeze because the unit is overworking to cool your home. Repairing a cooling coil is a costly proposition.
  • Breakdowns – Eventually the overwork to your system can wear down parts in your compressor, which could lead to breakdown that requires an expensive repair or premature replacement.

Avoid these problems by changing or cleaning your air filter every month during the cooling season. If you don’t know how to do that, contact us – we’ll schedule a visit to walk you through this important maintenance task.
