The air filter’s job is to keep dust and debris out of your HVAC equipment. You’d be amazed how much debris builds up on there in a very short time.
Recently, AC filters have gotten a lot of attention due to the pandemic. With the uncertainty about airborne transmission of the virus, some experts are recommending the use of higher-efficiency filters to trap virus particles.
When your AC filter gets clogged, dust and dirt start getting into the air conditioner itself, causing wear and tear on the parts. You probably know what that means: the more wear and tear on the parts, the sooner they wear out and you’re dealing with a breakdown. The clogged filter also prevents enough air from flowing through your heating and cooling system to keep it working properly.
Regular maintenance is key to keeping your heating and cooling system running smoothly. Change your air filter monthly or to the manufactures recommendations.
