So How Does Dust and Debris Impact My AC?

Quality air filtration, whether it’s the result of diligently changing your air filter or having a high quality electronic air purifier installed, can hugely benefit your air conditioner by keeping dust and debris out of it. Excessive dust can slowly but surely wreak havoc on your system’s moving parts, which increases friction in key locations such as the fan motor. In this case, your air conditioner will be forced to expend more energy in order to cool your home, yet its service live will be shortened and the risk of repairs will increase.

Your Coils Are in Danger

When dust coats the coils within your air conditioning system, in insulates the air form the refrigerant. As a result, your air conditioner is forced to work harder than it should have to in order to do its job. Frost can form on the surface of the coils, which creates a bigger problem as then the coils cannot do their job. It’s vital that you not attempt to clean the coils yourself, or scrape off any ice that has formed. Without getting to the root of the problem, the ice will only reform and you can accidentally damage your AC system. Instead, give our  professionals a call for quick AC service.
