A central air conditioner can last a 15 years or more if it’s well maintained – and one of the best ways to do that is also one of the simplest: check your air filter once a month during the cooling season, and change or clean it when it’s dirty.
A clogged air filter makes your A/C overwork to provide the same level of cooling comfort that a properly functioning unit would. That overwork can cause some real problems for you, including:
- Higher energy bills – A clogged filter can lead to higher cooling bills – up to 20 percent higher, if the problem persists.
- Less comfort – Stunted air circulation means less comfort for your family.
- Costly repairs – A blocked filter can eventually cause an A/C’s cooling coil to freeze due to overwork – an expensive problem to fix.
- Premature breakdown – Consistent overwork could eventually wear down your compressor, robbing you of years of service for your system.
