Essential Maintenance For Your Pooler, GA Home: Changing Your Air Filter

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Any industry professional will tell you that the key to keeping any home comfort system efficient and effective in Pooler, GA is to schedule regular, professional maintenance with a qualified service provider. While this is true and you should never attempt to repair or service your heating and air conditioning systems yourself, there are a few steps that you can take on your own to help ensure the proper operation of your system. One of the simplest, yet most effective and important ways to do this is to regularly change your air filter. For more information about how to change your air filter or to purchase replacements, contact AAction Air.

There are a lot of different factors that can lead to the introduction of dust, dander and other pollutants in your indoor air. Part of the task that your heating and air conditioning system performs is to filter out some of these pollutants from the air that you breathe. As the air is forced through the air filter pollutants become trapped in the filtering material.

The problem that develops if you do not change your air filter regularly is that the pollutants captured can build up to the point that they inhibit air flow. As your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner tries to disperse heated and cooled air, it will have to work harder and harder as it meets more and more resistance at the filter. This in turn leads to excessive wear and tear on your system as well as increasing the risk of damage to your system.

At AAction Air, we believe that the best way for homeowners to improve efficiency and the effectiveness with which their heating and cooling systems work is to educate themselves a bit. If you have any further questions about the function of an air filter or how to decide when it is time for an air filter replacement in Pooler, GA, contact AAction Air.
