It is only going to get hotter. As we near summer and the highest temperatures of the year, you’ll want to make sure that you are doing everything you can to keep your air conditioning in Bloomfield working right. If you schedule system maintenance already then you are off to a great start!
We want to bring up something that we see too many Bloomfield residents forget about during the cooling season though. While maintenance does include a filter change, you should still make a habit of checking and changing your filter for your AC throughout the season.
Let us explain why you need to change your filter more often than you may realize and why it is so important to do so.
Why Your Air Filter is Important
Your air filter is made to protect your air conditioner (and also your heater) from the impact of dust and debris build-up. While it may not move, it does serve an essential purpose.
Without that filter, the internal components of your system would be exposed to the full impact of all the dust in the air that it cools. Trust us when we say this would lead to a large number of problems much more quickly.
With a good air filter in place, your system will run more effectively and experience fewer problems due to dust build-up over the course of its lifespan.
How Often You Should Change (Or Clean) Your Filter
Firstly, we want to let you know that, yes, whenever you have your AC maintained, the filter is changed (or cleaned, if it is reusable). But this isn’t the only time that your filter needs to be checked out!
We advise everyone to check and change their filter every one to three months. We offer a range because someone with dirty air or who runs their AC very frequently would need to change their filter than someone who uses their AC less.
If you aren’t sure where your filter is or you aren’t comfortable with changing it just yet, make sure to talk to our technicians. We are always happy to help walk you through the process and show you what you need to do. Our goal is to help you achieve the best comfort possible!
If You Have a Reusable Filter…
For anyone with a reusable filter, you will still want to follow the same guidelines listed above. The difference is that, rather than disposing of the dirty filter, you’ll be following the directions on your reusable filter to clean it off before putting it back in place. We can help guide you through how to do this too.
