The Importance Of An Air Filter

AllergiesComing out of the coldest spring on record, I’m thinking back to all the great jokes I heard about the cruddy weather we are climbing out of.  A couple of my favorites include “Old Man Winter must have gotten lost on his way out of town, “ and “Mother Nature must be going through menopause”.  Looking ahead at the forecast and the temperatures staying safely in the 60’s and 70’s all week, I’m confident we’ve had our last snow fall until the snow season strikes us again. 

This makes me think of allergy season and the cooling season.  Last week I mentioned our tune-up special for $99.00.  One of our technicians will come out to your home to take a look at and tune-up your cooling system to ensure it’s in working order for when you just can’t take the heat any longer; no matter how far off that day seems.  Our technicians will take out all of the guesswork to make sure everything is up to snuff, including your filter.  But how important is your air conditioning filter, anyway?  You may be wondering this if it’s been a few years since you’ve paid any attention to your A/C unit other than switching it on.  Your filter is important in that it keeps unwanted dust and allergens out of your home.  If you have allergy sufferers in your family, they will thank you!  Your filter also helps to maintain your machine by keeping dust from collecting in the evaporator coil in your air conditioning system.  Your evaporator coil is one of the main components of your A/C system, so it’s important that it is kept clean and dust free.

Maintaining and keeping your air conditioning system clean is important for a long life and maintaining efficiency.  With anything, it’s important to maintain your system so it doesn’t lead to costly repairs down the road.  For cooling and air comfort tips during our summer season, be sure to follow and connect with Practical Systems on Facebook and LinkedIn
