3 Ways a Clean Filter Can Make Your Air Conditioner Happy, West Harrison, Indiana

As spring and summer approach and temperatures start to rise, it’s not unusual for homeowners to start making more use of their air conditioner. However, to get the most out of their units, it’s important for residents to keep their system’s filter clean. Otherwise, they run the risk of an uncomfortably warm home during the hottest months of the year.

Here are a few ways a clean filter will keep your air conditioner happy:

  • air conditioningEnergy Efficiency: Changing your air conditioner’s filter will keep the entire system operating at maximum efficiency. A clean air filter allows air flow to occur more effectively, which reduces the energy needed to operate your system by as much as 15%.
  • System Lifespan: If you don’t take care to replace your filter from time to time, dust could back up onto your air conditioning system’s condenser coil. The condenser coil is one of the most important components of the entire system, and having to replace it could cost you a lot of money. Not only does it decrease energy efficiency, but it also reduces the lifespan of the entire air conditioning unit.
  • Cycling Control: A clean filter helps your air conditioner by keeping its cycles running effectively. Some systems are set to cycle on and off throughout the day, and a dirty air filter will disrupt and shorten those phases. This can create more frequent cycles, unwanted temperature changes, and wasted energy.
