Have You Checked Your AC Air Filter Yet?

Monday, May 18th, 2020

dirty-air-filterYour air filter is an important part of your air conditioner but it might not be for the reasons you think. Contrary to popular belief, the filter that is built into your HVAC system is there for your unit’s protection, rather than for helping to reduce the duct in your house (though it doesn’t hurt that effort either). While it may not seem to be an important part of your system, the condition your filter is in will make a big difference in how well your air conditioner works.

If you aren’t sure what the purpose of your air filter really is, or if you need to change it out, we can offer a little clarification.

See your water comes from a municipal source that cleans and filters it but this doesn’t mean that it won’t pick up some hitchhikers along its route to your house. Don’t worry we aren’t talking about germs. We are talking about minerals and sediment. These minerals can wreak havoc in your home and in your New Port Richey plumbing appliances over time which is something that can be addressed with a water softener.
