The Basics: Filter Replacement
The most basic type of maintenance that can be performed on your unit is a filter replacement. Opting to have a professional replace your filter means that the new filter will be the best one for your AC or furnace unit and your home, the filter will be installed correctly, and we can recommend if adjustments should be made. Some adjustments might include changing the filter more often or having your ducts cleaned. Any suggestion made will take into account the people and pets in your home and how much the AC or furnace is used.
Getting the Most Out of Your AC or Furnace
There is no doubt that the Charlotte area experiences hot summers. With this said, no one wants to be without the relief of cold air in their home. Having your HVAC filter changed regularly has several benefits, including:
- Lowering electric bills – your air conditioner or furnace won’t have to work as hard to keep your home cool by running constantly. You can also turn the temperature up a bit and still feel comfortable
- Reducing wear and tear – the harder your air conditioning or furnace unit works, the more wear and tear it faces. This means more repair work is needed in the future
- Preventing stagnant air – HVAC units are responsible for moving air. When air doesn’t move, it gets stagnant, musty, and possibly moldy. Changing dirty filters allows air to move freely
- Air quality will improve – when a filter is dirty, it has less of an ability to catch dander, dust, hair, pollen, mold, or anything else found in the outside air. A clean filter ensures easy breathing, fewer allergens, and fewer trips to the doctor for respiratory issues
Your Best Bet
Keeping your HVAC unit running throughout the year is important, but in the summer it is critical to both your family’s comfort and health. Allowing us to stay on top of changing your HVAC filters may not prevent every problem, but it will go great lengths in assuring your comfort. If you’re ready to stop worrying about when to change the filter, if it’s the right kind for your unit, and if the filter is doing the best job possible, call Sky HVAC.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I change my air filter?
Filters should typically be replaced at least every 60 days. Replacing your air filter should occur monthly if you have pets or allergies.
What happens if I don’t change my air filter?
Failing to change your filter regularly wears down your system and can lead to costly repairs. It also effects the efficiency of your system leading to high energy bills. Air quality also suffers with dirty filters.
Can I run my AC without an air filter for a short while?
If you must, you can run an AC unit for 6-8 hours without causing system damage. Longer than that will damage your AC system and greatly lower the quality of the air in your home.
