- Change Your Air Conditioner Filter
1.You’ve heard this time and time again, but exchanging your air conditioner’s filter is very important. Even ENERGY STAR® counsels changing it monthly. You may need to replace the filter more or less frequently, contingent on your manufacturer’s instructions. If you take a look at your filter month after month, you’ll begin to determine how regularly you should change it. Air will flow more freely around your house when you have a clean filter. You’ll experience better air quality and improvements in air conditioner efficiency. Accumulation of dust and debris inside your system will push it work harder. More work could lead to a decreased lifespan for your system.

If your ducts contain any leaks, holes or poor connections, it’ll be harder for your system to efficiently drive air throughout your house. And even though your air conditioner will be working extra, you still may not be as comfortable as you would expect. If you are questioning how well-sealed your ducts are, ask the professionals at Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc. We can help you out.
