Air conditioner filters collect dust, allergens, and other tiny particles as air passes through them. With time, those particles collect and can clog a filter if it’s not changed regularly. Standard air filters are designed to last for up to one month, but there are some filters that last up to three months. You may find that you need to change your AC’s filters a bit more often because they fill up a bit faster. 

If you don’t change your filter regularly, your AC won’t work efficiently and may have a shortened lifespan. You know how much you depend on your air conditioning in Monroe, GA, and you don’t want to experience a breakdown in the middle of summer. Let’s take a closer look at what can happen if your AC filter isn’t changed regularly.

What Actually Happens During Air Conditioning Maintenance?

Monday, March 21st, 2022

The truth is, you could probably find a video online of how to DIY inspect your air conditioner. But the real question is, do you really want to? If something gets missed, you could end up with an unexpected and expensive repair need, or maybe even a sudden AC breakdown when you need your system the most.

Not to mention, professional air conditioning maintenance helps keep your manufacturer’s warranty current. This means that if you have a defect that causes an AC problem, the manufacturer will be held accountable for it, instead of it coming out of your pocket. If you try to repair or maintain your AC on your own, however, it voids the warranty.
