For efficient air conditioning systems, it is essential to conduct regular check-ups and maintenance practices on elements such as the filter. First, you should understand why a HVAC system's filter is important. Airflow in the AC passes through a filter that traps pollution agents such as dust, pollen, animal fur, and other air particles. The filter has a dense sieving system that traps the pollutants without inhibiting airflow through the system.
When to change an AC's filter
Due to the nature of its work, the air filter clogs over time. Pollutants accumulate, making it tricky for air to flow through it—the recommended changing time during such a malfunction for 30 days. The changing period also varies depending on the running time of the AC. During hot summers, the system runs for more extended periods, trapping more dirt than usual. Owners should change the AC filter in intervals of 30-90 days during these seasons.
Importance of changing the AC filter
1. Optimum functioning during summer periods
The summer season is infamous for its extreme and extended heat periods. The AC system is responsible for cooling and regulating room temperature, and clogging in the AC filter reduces the entire system's efficiency, making it challenging to control the temperatures. If you’re unsure how to change your AC filter, contact our team at A-Plus Quality heating and cooling services in Toronto.
2. Minimizing risks of breakdowns
Old AC filters become less effective traps for pollutants and debris, penetrating other parts of the AC. Dirt in the system increases chances of wear and tear hence breakdown, resulting in higher repair costs. Therefore, through A-Plus Quality’s HVAC services Toronto, building owners can replace the filters reducing the chances of breaking down.
3. Improved indoor air quality
Faulty air filters allow for the entry of debris and pollutant into rooms in the building. It is important to change air filters to prevent causing health issues to people in the building. Effective air filters minimize health risks to the old, children, and those suffering from asthmatic and allergic conditions.
