Is Your Air Filter Clean?

Time to Change Your Filters

Have you checked out the air filters in your home recently? Often homeowners forget to check their air filters if they are not is a place that you see every day. During the summer months, each air filter should be changed out ever 30 days. This will help prevent drain issues and will allow your system to be receiving and circulating clean air. This can also help people who have allergies and are sensitive to contaminates in the air.

Here are three easy things to do to make sure you're changing these every 30 days.

1. Set a reminder in your phone to change on the 1st of the month.

2. Take a picture of your filters so you know what size and what kind are best for your home. (If you're not sure, give us a call and we can help you out.)

3. Have a stock of clean air filters available so you don't have to run to the hardware store every month.

Watch the video below for more info about keeping your HVAC system running in tip top shape with clean filters.

Maintaining Clean Air Filters

If you live in Arizona, you know how dusty our environment can be. People often ask me which air filters are best for their A/C systems, and how often they should be replaced.

Here is my rule of thumb: During the summer months, you should check and replace your air filters every 30 days from May through September. When dust storms occur more frequently, filters may need to be replaced sooner than 30 days.

Why Doesn’t My House Feel Cool, Even with My A/C On?

Monsoon season is here in Arizona, causing hot and humid temperatures. During Monsoon season, our A/C systems work harder, because they are now removing moisture from the air inside the home, in addition to the heat. When this happens, the system’s “sensible capacity” (ability to cool the air) is reduced, and the system’s total capacity is split – latent capacity (used to remove moisture) and sensible capacity (cool the air).

The heat index also changes when humidity rises. Depending on how high the humidity is inside and outside of your home, a comfortable 75 degrees can feel more like 78 degrees – hot, uncomfortable, and sticky. An easy fix for this is to set your thermostat two degrees cooler. This will dehumidify the air in your home, and make it feel cool and comfortable.

Protect Your Investment with Routine Maintenance

You put a lot of money into your home air conditioning system unit, and pay the utility company every month for the luxury of cool air. Arizona homeowners understand the value of comfort and staying cool in our sizzling climate. However, it may be difficult to be sure your air conditioning is performing properly, and whether or not an emergency is on the horizon.

As your system operates day-after-day, dust and dirt build up in crucial areas that affect its efficiency, like the condensing coils and air filters. Because of this accumulation, your A/C system can lose a significant amount of its operating efficiency each year, if left unchecked. This causes efficiency to diminish over time, not allowing your house to stay cool like it could if it were clean.
