An air conditioners filter, coils, and fins require regular maintenance for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service. If you neglect these necessary maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance while your energy use steadily increases.
By far one of the most important maintenance tasks you can perform, which will ensure the efficiency and longevity of your air conditioner, is to routinely replace, or clean the filter. Clogged, dirty filters block normal airflow and reduce a system’s efficiency significantly. With normal air flow obstructed, air that bypasses the filter may carry dirt directly into the evaporator coil and impair the coil’s heat-absorbing capacity. When the filter is clean, it can lower your air conditioners energy consumption by as much as fifteen percent.
