Common Air Conditioner Problem – Dirty Air Filter

Changing your air conditioner air filter regularly is essential to keeping your A/C running smoothly and avoid the headache of repairs. It’s a simple and inexpensive process that can be done yourself to avoid a number of common air conditioner problem. A clean air filter can significantly improve the air quality in your home, increase your HVAC system’s lifespan, and improve its energy efficiency.

Air Conditioner Problem

Air Conditioner Problem Caused by Dirty Air Filter:

Poor Air Quality
When an air filter is dirty it can no longer properly filter out all the dust, mold, debris, and pollen in the air meaning that these airborne contaminants are being recirculated to the air in your home. Poor air quality can be a serious problem especially for those with respiratory conditions or allergies.

Dirty Air Ducts
When allergies from a clogged air filter build up, it can lead to mold growth in your air ducts. Neglecting this air conditioner problem can be seriously dangerous for you and your family’s health.

Frozen Coils
A dirty filter restricts air flow in your system causing the internal temperature to drop and leading the coils to ice over. When customers tell us that their A/C is blowing warm air, frozen coils are most likely the issue.

Uneven Cooling
If your air conditioner is struggling to reach your desired temperature or is leaving hot and cold patches throughout the house, this could also be a result of a dirty air filter.

Short Cycling
If your system is constantly turning on and off (short cycling) check to see if you have a clogged air filter before calling a professional HVAC technician to address the issue. Having a short cycling A/C will quickly inflate your utility bills.

High Utility Bills
What may seem like a minor air conditioner problem can cost you more than you expect in the long run. A clogged filter forces your system to work overtime to cool your home, increasing your monthly energy costs.

Expensive Repairs
Dirt and debris can cause wear and tear to the internal components of your system, leading to necessary expensive repairs in the future. The most common air conditioner problem we encounter is caused by a clogged air filter, an issue that can be avoided with regular A/C maintenance.

Premature System Failure
A dirty air filter decreases the efficiency of your air conditioner and deteriorates the internal components through added wear and tear over time. A neglected air filter will certainly lead to the need for premature system replacement down the line. Spending thousands on premature air conditioner replacement can be easily avoided with regular maintenance of your A/C filter.

Prevent Common Air Conditioner Problems With Regular Air Filter Replacement
Maintaining your A/C filter is as simple as checking it once a month and replacing it if it’s dirty. A/C filters are relatively inexpensive and replacing it on time can save you from serious repair problems in the future.
