Air Conditioning Filter Maintenance on ABC7 Suncoast View
Did you know that more than 25% of all the energy used in Florida homes is air-conditioning? That is four times the national average, so having our air conditioners run efficiently is essential.
Let’s start with central air conditioning and how it is supposed to work in our home. You have your thermostat set to the desired temperature. Of course it gets a little warm in your home, then the system on your system is going to then circulate the air in your home, obviously through your filter. Then once that thermostat gets to the desired temperature then the system will shut down. Having a clean air filter is key to improving your indoor air quality.
Your manufacturer recommends cleaning your system at least once a year or your warranties will expire. At AC Warehouse, we recommend having the system cleaned at least twice a year with the amount of runtime that we have here in Florida and that will keep your system running efficiently. Plus while we are cleaning your system, if we find something that could cause a problem in the future, we have the opportunity to handle it in a timely manner.
Outside of the routine maintenance, the number one thing a homeowner can do is change the air filters. Changing the filter will add more life to your system and will keep your system cleaner. We recommend changing the filters every 30 days, especially in the summer months. A filter is designed to catch all the danders, pet hair, and pollen. It is incredibly important to change your filters in order to improve your indoor air quality. Plus clean filters will help you save on your utility bill!
Some of the benefits of air filters are:
- Saving energy
- Saving money on utility bills
- Reducing allergens
