Don’t Let the Cold Catch You Off GuardNovember 10, 2023
Today, we would like to talk about a crucial component of your central air system that often goes unnoticed – the air filter.
What is an Air Filter and Why is it Important?
The air filter is a vital part of your central air system. Its primary function is to trap and hold various types of particulates and contaminants in the air that could affect the performance and lifespan of your system. These particulates can include dust, pollen, mold spores, and even bacteria.
By capturing these harmful particles, the air filter plays a significant role in maintaining the indoor air quality of your home or office. This is especially important for individuals with allergies or respiratory conditions, as a clean air filter can drastically reduce symptoms and improve overall health.
Protecting Your System
Beyond improving air quality, the air filter also serves a protective function for your central air system. Behind the filter lie sensitive components that, if exposed to additional dust and corrosion, can suffer damage leading to decreased performance and possible system failure.
For instance, the evaporator coil, which is responsible for absorbing heat from the air, can become clogged with dust and dirt over time if the air filter is not doing its job properly. This can lead to decreased efficiency, increased energy consumption, and costly repairs down the line.
The Necessity of Regular Filter Changes
Given its critical role, it’s clear that regularly changing your air filter is essential. Over time, the trapped particles will build up and the filter will become less effective. This not only compromises the air quality in your space but can also put the sensitive components of your central air system at risk.
At Academy Plumbing and Heating, we recommend changing your air filter every six weeks to ensure optimal performance and air quality. Remember, a small maintenance step now can save you from a big repair bill in the future.
