The air filter in your AC system is a very important but often overlooked, component of your cooling system. Its purpose is to clean the air that circulates through your cooling system. Filters trap and hold various particulates and contaminants that may affect your comfort as well as your health. It is critical that the air filters in your air conditioning system be clean and fit properly. This can help to ensure that the system itself works as efficiently as possible while also ensuring that the air in your home is clean and easy to breathe.
Air Filters Absorb Airborne Particles
Perhaps the biggest benefit to an AC filter is the fact that they will take dirt, pollen, and other debris out of the air. This means that you don’t have to worry about triggering an asthma attack or dealing with allergy symptoms on a regular basis while inside your own home. If you need help replacing or installing an air filter, the folks at Comfort Solutions Heating & Cooling in St. Louis can help. We can also repair or maintain all other aspects of your air conditioning system.
Clean Filters Mean Improved Energy Efficiency
An air conditioner that has a clean filter can use up to 15% less energy than one that has a dirty filter. That can result in a significant reduction in your energy bills each year. The savings may be even higher during especially hot or humid periods when air conditioner usage is higher.
Clean Units May Run Quieter
When dust and other debris get inside of an air conditioning unit, it may force the motors to work harder to circulate air around the home. This can result in additional noise that could keep you up at night or make it harder to read a book or watch TV during the day. In addition to the noise, motors that work harder to operate could also generate more heat due to friction, which is not good for your AC system either.
