How often should I change my filter?
Customers often ask our HVAC Flowery Branch GA technicians how often should the filter be changed. According to the EPA, you should look at your filter every 30 days, and if it is dirty, you should change it. Why is a filter change so important? The filter is designed to keep dirt and dust from accumulating on your fan’s blower motor, the fan blades, and also the evaporator coil. The evaporator coil is the medium that transfers heat into and/or out of your home. The evaporator coil needs to have a clean surface area so that the heat can transfer properly. Since the evaporator coil gets really cold, when the warm air passes over the coil, condensation will form, causing the coil to get wet. If dust and dirt are not trapped by the filter, it will stick to the wet surface of the evaporator coil, forming a barrier that will not allow the heat to transfer properly – therefore causing your equipment not to work efficiently.
A dirty coil can make your utility bills higher. Another problem that a dirty filter causes is air restriction to your equipment. The fan pulls air from your rooms across your equipment and if the filter is clogged, it will have to strain to try to pull the air through the filter – also causing your utility bills to be higher. Dirt is one of the biggest enemies of your air conditioning and heating equipment. That’s one reason why it is so important to be on an annual maintenance plan. Another reason is to check your furnace each year before using it to make sure that it is safe to use and that there are no carbon monoxide leaks. Taking good care of your equipment will help it to last longer, have fewer breakdowns, save you money on utility bills and also give you peace of mind knowing that you are doing everything you can to keep you and your family safe.
