AC FAQ: Why Change the Air Filter?

Pop quiz time — what is the single best thing that you can do to keep your air conditioning system in great working condition? If you answered “schedule routine air conditioning maintenance,” then you are correct. Mostly, anyway. Yes, scheduling routine air conditioning maintenance in North Las Vegas, NV is absolutely vital in the quest for a truly great home cooling experience. That being said, you’d be overlooking a very important step if you thought that this was all that is required of you.

While the bulk of your air conditioning maintenance procedures must be completed by trained professionals, there is one specific task that you yourself should be completing regularly. That is changing your air filter as needed. Typically, this means doing so every 1-3 months — though many factors will influence the situation and regularity in your home. If you have any doubts about just how important changing your air filter really is, we hope that you’ll keep the following information in mind. 

How Big of a Difference Can It Really Make?

We get it. You’ve got a lot on your plate, and the fact of the matter is that changing your air filter just doesn’t sound like that big of a priority. After all, it isn’t like your air conditioner is broken down or anything, right? Well, we really need to stress the fact that, simple a step as it may be, changing your air filter really can have some pretty major benefits for you and your system — just as failing to change that air filter can have some pretty serious consequences.

  1. Enjoy better efficiency. It goes without saying that we run our air conditioners a lot in this part of the country. You are going to have to pay for your comfort when the heat of summer strikes, but you should not have to overpay. If you leave a dirty filter in your air conditioner, though, chances are that you are going to be doing just that. Increased airflow resistance will force the system to work harder than it should have to in cooling your home, and your energy bills will reflect that.
  2. Enjoy better comfort. When your air conditioner is struggling just to force cooled air throughout your home, it is not going to function at peak performance levels. That will leave your comfort to suffer. The areas furthest from the air handler may not cool down as much as those closer, and your air quality may drop off as well. Very clogged filters can create so much airflow resistance that it is easier to force air around the filter than through it.
  3. Enjoy better reliability. Your air conditioner should go through a full cooling cycle before shutting down. If your air conditioner has a very dirty air filter causing it to overheat, though, then your system is likely going to wind up short cycling. That means that it will start up, run only briefly, and then shut back down. This increased strain can compromise the system, and increase the risk of damages.

Rudy and Chris were very helpful, professional and courteous. My only issue was with the scheduling. Our window was 9a-11a. We received text at 8:30a stating technician was enroute so I rushed to property. Tech arrived almost 11:30 after we were given new window of 11-1. This should be no reflection on Rudy and Chris.
