The importance of changing air conditioning filters in your home

Air filters are a vital, but often neglected, component of a central HVAC system. Prescott Air Conditioning discusses the importance of changing air conditioning filters in your Prescott home.

What they do

Air filters remove pollen and dust that would otherwise circulate through the house. Pollen and dust lower indoor air quality and often cause allergic reactions. Air filters also provide protection against larger objects such as bits of loose insulation. If you don’t change your air filter regularly, you can damage your air conditioning unit. Believe it or not, clogged air filters are the number one cause of the failure of HVAC systems.

Circulation

All air taken into the HVAC system passes through the air filter. As time goes on, the filter catches more and more of the natural pollutants of your home. These pollutants include dust, fungal spores, mold, fabric fibers, pet dander, etc. When these particles build up over time, the fine mesh through which air passes becomes denser. Thus, if you don’t change your air filter often enough, air can’t pass through as easily as it should.

Energy Costs

A dirty air filter results in your living areas not getting all the air they need. This decrease in air flow and circulation affects the temperature sensors which regulate when the HVAC system turns on and off. Inadequate air flow means your system might not be receive the signal to power down. Your utility bill will be higher, and more strain is exerted on the fan motor, which will result in a shorter life of your HVAC system

Prescott Air Conditioning hopes you recognize the importance of regularly changing the air conditioning filters in your Prescott home. Routine scheduled maintenance of your HVAC system will not only increase the life of your system, but keep it running efficiently - which means lower energy costs while keeping your home cooler. Don't wait any longer to schedule a maintenance appointment. Call Prescott Air Conditioning today at 928-308-1254.

5 out of 5 stars Rich and Brenda showed up within an hour of us contacting them, assessed the problem with our furnace, had the broken part on hand (!!! It's a 26 year old furnace!!!). They were extremely friendly, professional, explanatory and obviously care about the work they do. We had quite a few problems, and the 2 other HVAC folks said "just replace the thing" and took a service fee. While Rich tended to agree that it needs replacing, he made sure he got the unit working, inspected and was confident in its safety as a stop gap. Could not recommend them more. It's quite rare to get such thorough, professional.

5 out of 5 stars Brenda and Rich were very helpful. I called and left a message at 10 am on a Saturday, they called back an hour later, and we had our ac up and running by noon that day. Fast, friendly, easy to schedule and reasonably priced. As a local in Prescott I highly recommend them.
