Maintaining a clean filter is a great way to improve the energy efficiency of your system. A dirty filter may make it more difficult for air to flow effectively through the system, making the air conditioner work harder to cool your home.
A dirty filter may also have a negative impact on your indoor air quality. Indoor air quality is overlooked by many, but is very important. Poor indoor air quality may lead to adverse health effects in some individuals.
To maintain energy efficiency and to help avoid poor indoor air quality, make sure that you change your filter regularly. Disposable filters should be changed every month, although some are designed to last for two to three months, while non-disposable washable filters should be cleaned every month.
