It’s been a warm summer, and that implies you likely have run your home’s AC system a considerable amount. In the event that it isn’t cooling your home just as you’d like, the best initial step is the most straightforward – check your filter. Many people wonder, “Can a grimy air filter cause my AC not to cool?” The straightforward answer is yes – a dirty filter can make a few issues that can hinder your AC’s efficiency. Also, a dirty filter can likewise prompt untimely failure of your unit. Specialists like those at Air Lux suggest changing your filter month to month for best outcomes. 

Grimy filters can cause an entire host of issues for property owners. As a matter of first importance, they can make allergens develop in your home. At the point when the filter is messy, allergens can’t get caught in the filter as they should. In this way, they start developing in your ventilation work. The outcome? The air entering into your home each time your AC system runs is brimming with allergens, like dust, debris, spores – and also bacteria. This prompts poor interior air quality and can cause you and your family some horrendous physical conditions, like sneezing, stuffiness, and itchy eyes. 

Because of the development of debris, a dirty filter will cause poor cold air current in your AC. That cool air will be caught inside your AC system, causing ice to form on its coils. When that occurs, your AC system will freeze up and become inoperable. Before your AC freezes up completely, there will be a couple of indications you should pay special attention to. Uneven cool air all through your house is one of them.
