What Happens To My HVAC Systems When I Don't Change My Filters?

In order for your HVAC systems to operate at peak efficiency, along with providing your home is healthy indoor air quality, our Palm Beach County air conditioning technicians understand the importance of replacing your air filters once every three months. However, some homeowners are reluctant to perform this routine adjustment, often overlooking the benefits of changing their filters. So what occurs when this part of maintenance is ignored?

The following are the common results from not replacing your air filters regularly:

  • A frozen coil – When your filter is dirty, your HVAC system has to work harder to achieve or maintain the temperature you desire. The cooling coil in your air conditioner may become frozen since it’s been working extra to circulate air throughout your entire home. A frozen coil can result in an expensive repair.
  • Reduced airflow – Dirty filters can restrict air flowing through your HVAC systems and throughout your home. Since your unit is working overtime, your energy bills will significantly increase.
  • Unhealthy home – Particularly important for those who suffer from allergies and asthma, the air flowing throughout your home is filled with dirt, dust and other debris which can worsen your symptoms. If you have pets, pet dander could accumulate in the system and disperse allergens in your home.
