Filtration and air purification is so important to your air conditioner, if neglected your AC system’s efficiency as well as the clean air in your home will be compromised. A brand new AC system can be ruined if not equipped with a clean filter and an air purification system or UV light.
The main reason proper filtration is so important to your air conditioner is to prevent debris from building up in your evaporator coil which will then cause your unit to struggle cooling or heating and eventually break down. In addition to filtering debris AC filters also prevent household dust, pollen, dust mites, mold spores, pet dander viruses, and bacteria from polluting your air conditioner and more importantly your home.
The next thing that is a necessity is a UV sterilization system. UV systems are installed inside the indoor unit to kill microbial growth such as mold and mildew as well as sanitize the air that passes through. Your heating and cooling system circulates the air in your home on average 100 times per day. The 3 causes of indoor air pollution are VOC’s, Particulate, and Bioaerosols.
What Poor Filtration And No UV System Will Do
Some home owners choose to skip regular maintenance on their AC system others combine lack of AC maintenance with poor filtration and UV sterilization system. Mold and other forms of microbial growth thrive in dark and wet environments which means your indoor unit or air handler is where these microorganisms will set up camp and multiply. Below are some examples of customers who learned their lesson after I left them with hefty repair bills.
