Air Conditioning Filter | Accurate Air Control | The Sahuarita ConnectionWould it surprise you to hear that something as simple as changing your air conditioning filter on a regular basis could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars? Cleaning or changing air conditioning filters is a fairly easy, though often overlooked, part of home maintenance.  By Cleaning your air conditioning filters you can improve the indoor air quality of your home as well as the efficiency and life of your air conditioning system.

An air conditioning coil has fins similar to that of the radiator of your car.  When a filter is neglected or simply not installed the ac coil acts as the filter.  This can lead to costly repairs ranging from $500 to over $1000, especially if the coil is in the attic – as we see in many fof the newer homes in the Sahuarita area.  Having a dirty filter and/or coil can cause the air conditioning system to freeze up which can damage the compressor and leak water into your house.  In other words, costly, easily avoided repairs.

According to David Acquillino of Accurate Air Control, Inc, “Using a pleated filter rather than a standard filter will provide better protection for your AC system and help you avoid those unnecessary repairs and costs.  The reason for this is that a pleated filter has more surface area to it and will last longer and provide far better protection than a cheap standard filter commonly purchased by consumers.  The old adage ‘you get what you pay for‘ certainly rings true in this case.”

Since we all know the summer heat is on its way, now is a good time to have your air conditioning system evaluated and serviced.
