Change Dirty AC Filters for Peak Efficiency

Integrity Air Conditioning can tackle any AC maintenance


Dirty AC Filters Circulate Allergen-filled Indoor Air.

If your air conditioning filter looks like this – it is past time to change it!

It is very easy to forget a/c filter changes: filters are out of sight and out of mind. But if a/c filters are not changed regularly – your allergies will know the difference!

Worse: Energy bills will be higher – and cooling will decrease.

Here is North Texas, Dallas summers are very hot and humid. No one wants to come home after a long day and discover the air conditioner is not working – and the house is 90+ degrees indoors.

(We hope this never happens to you! But if you do have a/c problems nights, weekends or holidays – we have Dallas 24/7 Emergency HVAC Service. Call (972) 435-7593.)

The better way to change a/c filters regularly!

Make sure you change your AC filters often so it can run smoothly.

How Often to Change A/C Filters?

During Dallas summers, once a month for an a/c filter change works well for most a/c owners.

Dirty A/C Filters: Primary Cause of A/C Breakdowns

Neglecting necessary a/c maintenance ensures a steady decline in air conditioning performance – as energy use steadily increases.

Dirty filters reduce air flow in your air conditioning unit. The a/c will then use more energy and will not cool as it should. Worst case: totally clogged a/c filters can cause a/c failure.

A/C Freeze Ups Caused by Dirty Filters

If a/c air filters clog during a Dallas summer cooling season, this can cause the evaporator or cooling coil to freeze up. Why? Because not enough air flow is moving past the evaporator coil. Condensation produced when the a/c is running does not evaporate.

As a result, the a/c will begin freezing up.

Note: Dallas summer are hot and humid. An efficient air conditioner will remove lots of moisture from indoor cooled environments.

Importance of Regular Air Conditioner Maintenance

Air conditioners require regular maintenance in order for the unit to function effectively and efficiently throughout its years of service.

Would you drive a car 30,000 miles without an oil change? If you did, the engine would be permanently damaged; or burned out.

You should not run your air conditioner without regular maintenance, either. A modern air conditioner is high performance machinery.

Regular a/c maintenance saves time and money. And provides more efficient cooling with no downtime.

An analysis of 2,400 service calls revealed that up to 65% of A/C repairs could have been avoided with regular maintenance.
