Your air conditioning accumulates dust, pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and other airborne contaminants while sitting idle all winter. One of the most important things you can do for your HVAC system is to clean it top to bottom and inside out at the beginning of the season to remove volatile indoor air pollutants.
A complete AC system cleaning and performance inspection is recommended by experts and includes a fresh, new HVAC air filter. Replacing your HVAC filter regularly will help prevent clogs and air flow issues that may cause premature air conditioner breakdowns and decrease the air quality to breathe inside your home.
Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
Turning on your air conditioning at the beginning of the season without first completing a professional system cleaning may push airborne contaminants such as dirt, pollen, bacteria, and VOCs from scented candles, indoor cooking, and spring-cleaning products directly into your home’s open-air. This can often trigger allergies, mildew or mold growth, unwanted odors, and even illness.
Take control of your home’s health with an air conditioning cleaning and inspection:
Complete seasonal system health check
Improve indoor air quality
Restore AC to factory fresh condition
Review air flow for clogs that may cause system failure
Boost overall operating efficiency
Reduce system strain, cut costs to cool your home
Prevent premature breakdowns
Extend the life of your system
Improve Your Unit’s Efficiency
A complete system tune-up and new air filter are essential for allowing your unit to function properly. If your air conditioning system and filter are dirty, it will inhibit the airflow in your unit and cause it to use more energy and work harder than it should have. When temperatures rise, your system will naturally work harder. A clean filter allows your unit to function more efficiently when you need it most.
Lowers Your Energy Bills
If your unit has to work harder to function with a dirty filter, it also ends up increasing your energy bills. When your unit has a new, clean filter, it won’t have to work as hard and you won’t see your energy bills skyrocket as a result.
Extend Your Unit’s Lifespan
There’s one more thing that happens when a dirty filter causes your unit to work harder — it can shorten your unit’s lifespan. The harder your unit has to work over a long period of time, the more likely it is to break down or stop working altogether. If you want to make sure that your unit lasts its intended lifespan, it’s essential to change your HVAC filters.
