There are many things that can cause your air conditioning system not to function as well as it should, but here are a few key components that can cause you to both loose efficiency with your AC and increase the allergens in your home.
Remember, your AC system moves 1.4 million cubic feet of air per day. Pretty impressive, right? Well, there are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to getting the best performance out of your air conditioning system.
“A dirty filterwill slow down air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm or cool. This will waste energy and lead to expensive repairs and/or early system failure.” – Energy Star
“1/8th of an inch of dirt and dust build up on the blower wheel can reduce airflow by up to 30%” – Texas A&M Study
“A build up of .042 (1/20) inches of dirt on the heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease in efficiency of 21%” – Environmental Protection Agency
“Removing the dust from the blower and the air ducts can increase air flow from the registers by up to 20%” – Environmental LLC
So make sure you change your air filters regularly, remove the dust from the blower & the air ducts & keep the coils clean. These are just a few things you can do to protect your air conditioning system and maximize the efficiency.
