Dirty Air Filters Cost You Money

A Dirty Air Filter can cause damage to your Heating & Cooling Unit. Dirty air filters cause restricted air flow for your air handler causing it to work harder to control the temperature of your home. This additional strain may trigger components of your unit to burn out. A dirty filter can also allow dust and dirt to get to your evaporator coil causing it to freeze over and degrade your energy efficiency. In some cases the evaporator coil will need to be cleaned or replaced causing you to spend hundreds of dollars in repairs. Changing your air filters is important part of keeping your unit running at its optimum. Call Summit Heating & Air Conditioning to find out more about protecting your Heating & Cooling unit.
