What Happens When You Don’t Change The AC Filter

You should not overlook the humble AC filter. It is a key player in the success of any modern HVAC system. Knowing their benefits and when to change them will convince you to not shrug off changing the filters, and this will help you maintain a healthy, well-functioning home.

The Power of Clean Filters

  • AC units work better when filters are clean. It’s true! The intake of air is easier for clearer filters, which allows the unit to cool the air more evenly and efficiently.
  • Pollutants in the air are nothing to sneeze at. Whether it’s dust, animal hair, or particles of dirt, unfiltered air can damage your health. This is especially true for anybody with asthma, allergies, and other conditions which make breathing difficult.
  • Filters extend AC units’ lifespans. Akin to how less pure water can cause more buildup in pipes, less pure air can cause buildups in the ventilation and machinery of your AC if the filter is no longer effective.

When Should You Refresh Your Filters?

There is no perfect answer for this question. Most professionals suggest that between 30-90 days should be the ideal for filter replacements. The large degree of variance depends on how many people and pets use the space which the filter supports. Also, the higher the quality of the filter, the higher it’s MERV number (Minimum Efficiency Rated Value), the longer you can use the same filter.

But there is another option beyond simple replacement. There are multiple brands which produce reusable, washable filters. They can be as good as most disposable filters while being more environmentally and economically friendly.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to HVAC knowledge! If you ever have a question or request, reach out to A Quality, where we have 24/7 support available; call us at 623-853-1482.

Customer Testimonials

“Jason was pleasant, professional, and helpful. He clearly talked about my options and answered all my questions. I’d gladly do business with him again.” - Katrine Cady
“Manny came to repair my air conditioner. It took several procedures and he finally replaced my new motor. It seems to be doing the trick. He also put in a new thermostat . Mine was 21 years old so it was time. He was pleasant and easy to work with; answered all my questions, and there were a lot, until I understood. I would recommend this company and this tech unconditionally!!!” - Midge Abel
“Our upstairs AC stopped working yesterday and I chose this business because of their 5 star reviews. They did not disappoint. Rachel was amazing. She is not only friendly but she is very professional. She was ready to send someone out within an hour! John came out and was very knowledgeable, professional and above all, honest. You don’t see that very often anymore. I will definitely come to them for my future AC/Heater needs.” - Heidi Hedina
