When it comes to indoor air quality, some homeowners take the time to change their filters religiously, and others rarely if ever address the condition of the air filter. Those that take care of the maintenance for their air filters not only have better indoor air quality, but they also experience far fewer breakdowns of the HVAC system. The furnace and the air conditioner share a filter, and failing to change this filter regularly this summer could leave you without cooling on some very hot days. Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning can help you simplify your air quality maintenance and should your air conditioner fail from lack of filtration, we can get the unit back in working order.
Running the Air Conditioner without a Filter
Every year, without fail, our servicemen report finding an HVAC system that has been operating without a filter. What usually has happened is that the furnace or air conditioner has stopped working because the old filter had become too clogged to allow adequate airflow. The homeowners removed the filter, started up the HVAC system, and consequently forgot to replace the old filter with a new one. Within a matter of weeks the systems will become clogged with dust, debris, and anything else that was floating through the ducts. This then renders the air conditioner or furnace useless, and Four Seasons gets a call. All of this could have been prevented if the homeowner had simply replaced the filter immediately.
Upgrade to Minimize Maintenance
Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning can help you upgrade your filter to one that requires much less maintenance than your standard fiberglass filters. These filters will not only do a much better job of cleaning the air, they will also only require replacement once a year! Schedule your filter replacement along with your air conditioner cleaning and you will never have to worry about remembering to replace your filter again!
