Signs That You Need to Replace Your Air Filter

Here are the signs you need to get an air filter service:

  • Discolored Filter: If the filter is discolored, yellow, or gray, it’s time to replace it.
  • Dust and Dirt Accumulation: If the filter and/or vents are covered in dust and dirt, the filters need to be cleaned or replaced.
  • Increased Dusting Frequency: If your home or business needs to be dusted more often, it could be a sign that the filter is not effectively trapping particles.
  • Unsure About the Last Replacement: If you can’t remember the last time you had your air filter serviced, it’s likely time for a cleaning or replacement.
  • Longer Time to Cool or Heat Your Home: If it takes longer for your home to be cooled or heated, it may be a sign of a clogged air filter.
  • Overheating HVAC Unit: A clogged air filter will make your system work harder to pull in air and cool or heat it before sending it out in your home. If your HVAC unit is overheating, it might be due to a dirty air filter.

Air Filter Replacement and Cleaning Services

Regularly checking and replacing your HVAC’s air filter is one of the best ways to keep the air flowing from your AC properly. Replacing and inspecting them can also help maximize indoor air quality.

When replacing your HVAC system’s air filters, our technicians will:

  • Thoroughly locate and inspect all filters within your HVAC system.
  • Recommend the optimal replacement for each filter, tailored to your system’s specifications. We commonly replace HEPA filters, UV light filters, electrostatic filters, washable filters, media filters, spun glass filters and pleated filters.
  • Gently remove existing filters, taking note of any signs of wear, tear, damage, or unusual buildup in the vicinity of the filters.
  • Expertly install the new filters, ensuring a snug fit and optimal functioning of your HVAC system.
  • Schedule your next appointment for future filter replacements to maintain your system’s efficiency and air quality.

New air filters are most effective in filtering dust and debris from the dirty air, creating clean air that flows throughout your property. When you schedule air filter services with us, you can count on our specialists to replace your dirty air filters and get you back to having clean, contaminant-free air flowing through your home easily and efficiently.

How Often Should You Schedule Air Filter Services?

The answer lies in the specific type of system and how often you use it. For example, If you don’t use the AC too often, changing your HVAC system filters at least twice a year is recommended. But, if you use your AC often, the filtration may need to be changed as often as monthly or bimonthly. Additionally, if the air quality is low due to pet dander, dust, or outdoor environmental elements, the air filtration may need to be addressed more often.

Benefits of Air Conditioner Filter Cleaning and Replacement

Cleaning and replacing your AC’s air filter is essential. Here’s why: Dryer vents, heating, and air conditioners utilize filtration systems to trap the airborne particles in the filter (which is made of materials like cotton gauze) and over time the air flow can become clogged with dirt and debris. Most of the time these are disposable filters that can be replaced; however, there are reusable air filters that can be cleaned.

It’s easy to overlook the importance of air filter changing service. After all, it’s tucked away inside the AC unit. However, as the seasons change, so do the needs of the HVAC as you switch it from cooling to heating. The slightest attention to the air filters can significantly affect how well the system cools or heats your home and the indoor air you breathe.

  • Better indoor air quality: HVAC air filters are designed to trap all those unwanted elements that blow through the AC and into your home. When you schedule air filter service, you’ll get a new air filter that pulls dust, pollen, mold, animal fur, bacteria, and other pollutants.
  • Improved HVAC efficiency: Conducting an air duct cleaning, checking your air vents, and regular maintenance can also help keep your system running at optimal levels. By failing to change out the air filter regularly, air that bypasses a dirty filter can carry dirt into the system, reduce the evaporator coil’s heat-absorbing capacity, and cause a decrease in energy efficiency.
  • Lower utility bills: Clogged filters make the AC work harder, decreasing its energy efficiency. If your AC is stressed, it consumes more energy and raises your energy bill, too.
  • Minimize wear and tear on the HVAC system: Your HVAC runs smoother when fitted with a new air filter. Why make the AC work harder than it should? Invest in air filter service and reduce the wear and tear on your AC unit.
  • Prevent mold growth: A dirty air filter can trap moisture, creating a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and bacteria. Regularly replacing the filter helps to mitigate this risk.

Fortunately, you can help keep the air clean inside your home by scheduling an air filter replacement service from Bill Howe.
