Is It Bad for an AC Filter to Be Dirty?
AC filters exist to trap dirt and other airborne contaminants before they reach your air conditioner unit. Periodically your filter needs to be cleaned, otherwise, these contaminants collect and can cause problems. The most obvious problem is that the quality of the air your AC unit is blowing will be compromised. Since the cooled air has to pass through the system’s filter it is exposed to all the contaminants making your air not as healthy as it should be.
While it is not good for any part of your air conditioner to be exposed to so much contaminant, it is especially bad for the evaporator coils. Evaporator coils are, in essence, the part of the air conditioner unit that absorbs the heat from the air in your home. If they are not working properly your AC unit will not be working at its full potential. A clogged filter also means that the unit will have to work harder to function properly, making it use more energy, which in turn can make it more expensive to run.

Finding the Right Unit For Your Home
At Carter Services, we provide AC installation services for a variety of types of units. Central air is usually the most sought-after type of cooling, however, it is usually the most expensive to install, requiring ductwork. Ductless, or mini-split, which does not require ductwork, is best for cooling isolated rooms or to support an existing central air system. Compact window units are placed in windows and require the least amount of effort to install. We also install and service heat pumps. Whatever your family's needs are, our Torrance AC technicians can help you.
