The Township Senior Living Plant Operations Shares the Importance of Changing Air Filters

Category: Senior Living

Author: Jason Carr, Plant Operations Director

An important rule to remember when it comes to making sure your air conditioner works well, is to clean or change the air filter regularly. The purpose of the filter is to help clean the air coming into your home, it’s like a net catching all the tiny particles floating in the air. New or cleaned filters keep your AC happy and working nicely. The manufacturer or installer should suggest how often to service filters; however, if you live in a place with a lot of dirt and dust, you will want to clean the filters more often.

At The Township Senior Living we understand the air conditioner needs good, quality air to do its job efficiently. Clean air filters allow the air conditioner to cool the community better, making both residents and staff feel more comfortable.

Air conditioners are also smart, they are like robots notifying if something is wrong and even what is wrong! Just like you need regular visits to the doctor for a check-up, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance. Having an HVAC professional check your air conditioner on a regular basis is the best way to keep it smart and keep you cool on those hot summer days.

I always make sure the filters are changed and coils are cleaned to keep the units running great. I check the thermostat, calibrations, and settings as well. Regular tune-ups help keep the heating and cooling equipment running as efficiently as possible for as long as possible when the system is running at peak efficiency. It consumes less energy which can lead to lower utility bills. HVAC maintenance is worth it for the energy savings alone!

Other than changing filters at my house and office, I clean the radiator or duct vents and rinse the outdoor central air conditioner coils once a year, keeping them clean and free of dust. Clean HVAC filters also reduce the allergens and other particles in the air, which helps to keep my home and community healthy. It is important to check your filters once a month during the high-use winter and summer seasons.

Changing air filters is one of the most important maintenance tasks completed to extend the efficiency and life of air conditioners. Checking and replacement of filters should be completed on a regular schedule. Filters are much cheaper than air conditioner units.
