One of the most common reasons for HVAC malfunction and poor indoor air quality is a lot simpler than you think.
One of the most common reasons for HVAC malfunction and poor indoor air quality is the failure to replace the A/C filter every 30-90 days. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends regular maintenance for your air conditioning system to maintain its efficiency and improve its performance. Replacing your air filter is a key part of that maintenance process. Here are some of the most important benefits of timely AC filter replacement for your heating and cooling system.
Dirt and debris in your filter can obstruct air flow, increasing the workload of your cooling system. These obstructions include dust, dirt, mold, bacteria, and other volatile organic compounds. By replacing the filter regularly, you can reduce wear and tear on your air conditioner while allowing the free movement of air for improved indoor comfort. As air filters become older and deteriorate, they can release fibers and debris directly into the moving parts of your air conditioning system. This can lead to mechanical breakdowns and poor indoor air quality that can reduce the comfort of your home and create health issues associated with both short-term and long-term exposure to poor indoor air quality. By making sure your air filters are in good condition and free of excessive dust and debris, you can avoid costly repairs for your heating and cooling system, as well as fresh circulating air.
Indoor Air Quality
As your filter ages, the electrostatic technology used to attract and collect indoor airborne allergens and pollutants begins to breakdown, thus releasing the collected indoor airborne allergens and pollutants back into the circulating air within the air you breathe in your home. With a Fresh Air Matters A/C filter replacement plan, we will combat health issues such as asthma, respiratory disorders and diseases, and some cancers by eliminating the collected allergens and pollutants on the same day, at the same time, every 30-90 days.
