Your air conditioning system contains a filter, most often located in your return air grille. This filter catches the dust and dirt particles in the air that pass through it. Over time the filter will become clogged with excessive dust and dirt, causing the airflow to become restricted. This clogged filter then becomes an air restriction in your air conditioning system. Airflow restrictions can cause many different issues with your air conditioning system like reduced energy efficiency, greater chance of breakdowns, and decreased cooling capacity. Left alone this one dirty filter can cause your air conditioning system to cease functioning altogether! Changing your filters on a monthly basis is not only smart for your health by removing dust and dirt from the air you breathe, but also keeps your air conditioning system running smooth & efficiently, and helps prevent costly repairs.
