When you are in your home, you will want to make sure that the air quality is the best that it can be. This is important to everyone in your home, especially if someone suffers from allergies or asthma. Depending on your household, you will want to change the filter on a more frequent basis. This happens if you have pets, several people in your home, or if someone uses tobacco products. The filter will need to be checked regularly to ensure it is clean. When recommended, it should be changed as well. We can advise you when this should be. Having a new air filter helps keep the air in your home clean.
Remember to never operate the air conditioner without a filter. Doing so can cause the internal parts and components to become worn and strained. It can cause them to wear out sooner than they otherwise should as well. Choose a filter that is the correct size for the air conditioner. Making sure that it is will help it to be efficient and run properly. We can recommend what type of filter and advise what size is needed for the air conditioner. Some programmable thermostats will alert you for when a filter should be changed. This helps to maintain the system, while also keeping the air quality in your home the best it can be.
Also remember to check the ductwork in your home as well. Over time, dirt, dust, and debris can build up in the ductwork system. If you notice the system no longer being efficient as it operates, the ductwork can be clogged. Make sure to inspect it and have it cleaned if it is needed. Also remember to contact us with anything you notice out of the norm when the system is operating.
