Clean Up Your Air Filters | Forquer Heating and Air Conditioning

Dirty air conditioner filters come with hidden dangers that you may not be aware of. These dangers can cause harm to your health, wealth and the safety of your own home.  Keeping a clean air conditioner air filter can save your family from unwanted illnesses and even better - save you money! 

The Dangers of a Dirty Filter

A dirty air conditioner filter can flare up your allergies. Dirty air filters can cause numerous physical symptoms such as tightness in your chest, fatigue, headache and cold symptoms that you’re unable to get rid of.

When an air conditioning filter accumulates dirt on the cooling coils, it allows frost to accumulate on the coils and the fans, which makes it difficult for the unit to cool your house.

If your filter is dirty, you can expect that the air you breathe in is dirty too. When you don’t clean your filter you’ll also have dirty air ducts. The unit will disperse nothing but dust, dirt and allergens in your home.

A dirty air filter means that your air conditioner is having to do too much work to keep your house cool. It’s much harder to cool your house with a dirty air filter, and your electric bill will rise because it’s having to run more.

Another issue with a dirty air filter is that you’ll receive reduced air flow. Air conditioners are built to work with internal air flow, and that isn’t happening if you have a dirty air filter. Having a dirty air filter could cause your air conditioner to malfunction. It’ll also raise your electric bill as the unit struggles to take in air.

The Benefits of a Clean Air Conditioner Filter

Having a clean air conditioner filter will make a significant improvement in improving the air quality in your house. You’ll no longer have to worry about pollen, dirt, dust and dander causing havoc to your allergies. If someone in your household has allergies or asthma, it’s best to clean your air conditioner filters frequently.

By keeping your air conditioning filter as clean as possible, you’ll help improve the lifespan of the unit. The system will run easier and smoother.

Another benefit of cleaning your filters is that you’ll be able to save money on your electric bill.
Keeping your air conditioner filter clean benefits everyone in your household. Having a clean air filter will improve the air quality in your home, improve the lifespan of the unit and you’ll be able to save some money on your electric bill. It’s important to clean your air conditioner filters regularly to avoid any issues.

The best way to prevent the dangers listed above is to stay on a maintenance schedule. If you'd like to stay on top of your air filter, contact us today and we'll take care of you!
