AC Filter Replacement in Virginia Beach

NATE Certified & Highly Experienced Technicians

Air conditioning filters collect dust, pollen, and other indoor air debris. The filter traps these particles on its surface, preventing them from floating throughout your home and clogging up your AC unit or ductwork. In short, these filters help control and improve your home’s air quality.

Let us help you with professional filter replacements to make sure your home stays comfortable year-round. We conveniently serve customers throughout Virginia Beach and surrounding areas.

How Effective is Your Air Filter?

There are six common types of air conditioning filters: standard panel, electrostatic, extended-surface, polyester, electronic, and HEPA filters. Depending on which type of filter you have, its efficiency in removing dust from your home ranges from less than 5 percent to over 99 percent.

How Often Should You Replace Your Filter?

Manufacturers recommend that the average air conditioning filter be changed every 30 to 60 days, but this number can vary widely based on several factors. If you live in a less polluted area, you may not need to change your filter as often as people living in highly polluted areas. If you own a vacation home, the filter may not even need to be replaced any more than every six to twelve months.

The average suburban family with no pets is able to use a filter for 90 days before replacement. On the other hand, if your home is full of people or pets, or if you are prone to allergies, you will need to change your air filter as frequently as once a month.

What If You Wait Too Long to Replace Your Filter?

If air conditioning filters are not changed on a regular basis, they become clogged and dirty. Air cannot pass through them as efficiently. As a result, dirty filters can cause your home’s HVAC system to work harder than it needs to, which in turn leads to an increased electricity bill and a premature unit breakdown.

Dirty filters can also cause your home’s indoor air quality to suffer, as well as worsen any allergies. Your home’s temperature will also suffer from inconsistencies, being either too high or too low.

Are You Maintaining Your AC Too?

A well maintained AC unit and regularly replaced filters are ideal to keep your HVAC system running in top shape. We recommend servicing your AC unit at least once a year, although some homes will need their units maintained more frequently than others. While many people wait until their unit is broken before they pay attention to it, air conditioning units should be inspected regularly to keep them in peak condition and to prevent them from premature breakdowns.
