As a property owner, there are a few things you can do to extend the life of your air conditioner. One simple yet effective method is to change your air filters on a regular basis. As time goes by, your filters collect dirt, dust, and debris. They become clogged and force your system to work harder than usual. By placing an extra toll on your air conditioner, dirty filters decrease the life of your HVAC system and increase the chance of it breaking down.
But there are other issues with dirty filters. When you don’t clean your filters, you put your health at risk. Dander, dust, and bacteria remain in the air, and you could develop allergies. If someone in your home is elderly or has respiratory issues, they could become ill. You should replace your filters every three months to keep them clean.
