Just like the filters in the car, filters in the home need to be changed and cleaned regularly. Whether they are disposable or washable, keeping clean filters changed out each month can make a BIG difference in your system’s performance.
Clean or change filters once a month or as needed, and maintain the system according to manufacturer’s instructions. Filter and coil maintenance have a dramatic impact on system performance and service life. Dirty filters, coils, and fans reduce airflow through the system. Reduced airflow decreases system performance and can lead to compressor damage if it continues for an extended period.
