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

Category: Senior Living

Author: Robert Borushko Jr., 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 Wellington 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.

The activities I do to maintain the HVAC system here at work is check and clean the coils often, as well as change out the filters every three months. One of the biggest benefits of maintaining the HVAC unit, you can help prevent major issues in the middle of the hot summer.

Other than changing filters at the office, this is also a good time to clean out the duct work to make sure nothing is built up inside and air flows freely. Another thing I like to check is door and window seals, to make sure the cooler air is staying inside.

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.
