These air filters may be the worst of the worst, but this also may be what yours looks like if you haven’t changed it in a while, especially in our part of Arizona with the blowing dirt and dust!
At Alaskan Air Conditioning and Heating, we get calls like this one all of the time: “My air conditioner is blowing but there’s no cold air coming out” or “My HVAC system is running continuously, but it’s not cooling my home.” And, this one: “Why is my home so dusty?”
In over 30 years in business in the Phoenix and Tucson areas, Alaskan Air Conditioning has found that for at least a quarter of our calls, the problem is because the air filter has not been changed in a timely manner. The air filter is so dirty that air cannot properly flow through it and cool the home.
When the air filter is clogged or so dirty that the air flow is being compromised…air that is supposed to freely flow into the living spaces has to work harder to get there. And, when it finally does, the indoor air is so polluted that is it leaving a trail of dust and odors. But not just that, dirty air filters cost you money on utility bills and even more costly system repairs because your system has to work harder to condition the air.
Changing your air filter regularly—every month or two—is a best practice for maintaining system efficiency, cleaner and healthier indoor air, less dust and ultimate comfort.
Alaskan Air Conditioning can help you with the task of air filter changes with one of our Alaskify maintenance plans.
