United for your comfort since 1987

Dirty filters or worse no filters in your air conditioning system can and will cause multiple problems.

Air conditioning filters that are not changed or cleaned regularly will form a buildup of dirt and dust causing a lack of airflow through the filter (as pictured above), which seriously impacts the system’s ability to cool properly, forcing longer run times, which in turn relates to higher utility bills.

Now even worse, is no filter at all in the system! This allows all the airborne dirt and dust to enter the air handler accumulating on the evaporator coil, the blower wheel, and housing. When this is allowed to happen…

Just think of all the little particles of air born sludge lodging inside your lungs each time you inhale.

If allowed to continue, it can cause the system to freeze up due to a lack of airflow, causing water damage which results in costly repairs.

So long story short, check your filters monthly and clean or replace as needed.
