Benefits to Replacing Your California AC Filter
Is it time to change the air conditioning filter in your Thousand Oaks air conditioning system? Replacing your AC filter is a quick and painless task, as long as you choose the right filter for your home. When choosing a new AC filter, it’s important to look for its level of efficiency, how much dust it can stop.
Another very important job that your air conditioner filter does is helps to keep dust from collecting on the evaporator coil of your air conditioning system. It is located inside the air handler and is one of the four main components of any air conditioning system. The air filter is usually located somewhere just before the evaporator coil.
Any dust that passes through the filter ends up back in your living space and can be very irritating to allergy sufferers and anyone else who is sensitive to dust. The filter also prevents the evaporator coil from becoming clogged with dust and reducing the efficiency of the equipment. This evaporator coil is very similar to the radiator in a car. Like your car radiator, it will not be able to do its job without proper airflow.
It could take months or even years for dust to accumulate in the fins of the evaporator coil; it can even form a layer of dust on the fins which can detrimentally affect the air quality in your home, and your HVAC system’s performance. If your Thousand Oaks air conditioning system is serviced regularly, the technician will check this and tell you when it needs to be cleaned, if this is not done it will lead to expensive repairs.
