When summer first begins and that first heat wave rolls through, hopefully you have your air conditioning system ready. Ideally you will have had it maintained the spring before and have kept up on repair needs. You’ll also likely have changed the air filter to get it ready for regular use. However, as we near the “end” of summer, you’ve likely not given much more thought to your air filter.
In order to keep your air conditioner functioning at peak performance and efficiency levels, you want to make sure that you are changing your air filter on a regular basis. The air filter that comes standard with your system is there to protect its inside components, so without changing it, you could be allowing damage to occur within the system. Plus, changing it something that’s relatively easy to do and you can do on your own.
