While it is often overlooked, a clean high-quality air filter can greatly increase the comfort and efficiency of your home. With your home’s AC running on full-blast throughout the summer your filter’s lifespan could diminish and need replacing.
Whether you’re constantly sweating inside of your home or have recently noticed strange sounds and smells coming from your air conditioning vents, it’s time to look into AC repair. We understand this can be a stressful process, but at Accurate Heating & Cooling we’re here to make sure all of your AC maintenance and repair goes as smoothly as possible.
Why is it important to have AC Maintenance performed in the summer?
With the hot weather this summer in Columbia, MO you’re going to use your air conditioning pretty often. As a result, your air filter will collect a higher amount of particles which can restrict your AC system’s overall performance. Having an air filter that is not performing at its full capacity can greatly impact the functionality of your air conditioning as well as create health threats to you and your family. The best option is to check your air filter often and request AC maintenance as necessary.
What are some signs I can look for to know if I need AC Maintenance?
- High energy bills – According to the Department of Energy, nearly half of energy expenses in a home is due to heating and cooling. A buildup of particles on your air filter will restrict the airflow making it harder for air to enter your home. As a result, your air conditioning requires more energy to keep your home cool. If you have noticed an increase in your electricity bill it is likely due to your air conditioning system not performing properly.
- Increase in dust – All homes have dust. However if you have noticed an excessive amount of dust accumulating in your home, a poorly performing AC system may be the cause. This can result from either a buildup of pollutants or the air filter itself is not able to catch smaller particles such as dust and other allergens.
- Uneven temperature throughout your home – Rooms often require different amounts of air movement to achieve a consistent temperature throughout your house. For example, a room with three exterior walls requires a considerably more airflow to maintain the same temperature as an interior room without any exterior walls. However, dirty or low-quality air filters restrict airflow and prevent each room from receiving the correct amount of air, which as a result creates an uncomfortable imbalance in temperature throughout your home.
