  • Man checking air conditioner's filter

Temperatures in Kings Mountain feel great in some parts of the year.  But the area can be too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter, which comes with higher humidity.  Air conditioners can moderate the temperature indoors for you, but they also draw moisture from the air.

The many different components of air conditioners all have the potential to break, such as air filters. In the event of emergencies, Gastonia’s 24/7 air conditioning service can fix your home’s comfort system.

But you can prevent unexpected troubles with your air filters with proper maintenance.

How Do Air Filters Clog

Trust us when we say your air filters need regular checking. Doing this can ensure the efficiency of your air conditioner. Clogged and dirty filters obstruct normal airflow, hindering your air conditioner from functioning well. Reduced air flow due to a dirty air filter can result in air conditioner problems or higher utility bills.

The air bypassing the filter can carry dirt straight into the evaporator coil, which impairs it’s the coil’s capacity to absorb heat. The dirt will not only mess up your unit’s energy-efficiency. It can also cause the evaporator to ice.

If you replace your dirty and clogged air filters with a clean one, you can lower your energy bill. Clean air filter can reduce your air conditioner’s energy consumption from 5 to 15 percent. You can ask your local heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) technicians when you experience air conditioner glitches.

How Can You Properly Maintain HVAC System

To save up on your energy costs, inspect your air filters at least once a month. In doing so, clean them especially if you have the reusable ones. Replace them if you think it’s necessary.

A lot of homeowners understand the task of changing a central air conditioner filter. Conducting it often enough may not be much of an issue. Monitor your unit’s ability to perform properly. If you figure out what’s wrong with your air conditioner, you can save a lot from minimizing potential issues.

The summer and winter seasons in Kings Mountain call for heavy use of your air conditioner. It’s also in these seasons when your air filters will need you to be hands-on in cleaning and changing them. Spring is the ideal time for your air conditioner’s annual inspection; the weather’s fine for an AC check and it allows for enough time to prepare for its heavy use.

If you tend to forget your routine maintenance, you can install a permanent filter, which needs cleaning or replacing once a year. You can do this yourself, but you could still rely on the expertise of HVAC professionals.
