How often should I change my air filter?
Once a month is a good rule to live by. Sure there are other factors to consider like where you live, how much dirt you track in, and if you have pets. However, a smart rule to follow is to change your filter every four weeks to ensure your breathing air is fresh and clean.
Is cooling service necessary?
Absolutely! Don’t neglect seasonal air conditioning service just because the unit turns on. With proactive cleaning, oiling, tightening, and lubricating, the system runs more efficiently leading to lower energy bills, cleaner indoor air quality, reduction in AC repairs, and increased comfort.
Why do I have frozen pipes on my HVAC device?
The culprit is either dirt or low Freon. Turn the AC function off and let your fan run for an hour. The ice should melt for you. Next, try changing out your air filter to see if that fixes the issue. If not, call Mr. Chill Heating & Air to make the easy fix of adding more Freon or finding a more serious issue.
Does my AC need an air filter to work?
Technically no, you could run your cooling system filter free. It isn’t a smart move though. For a brief amount of time, six to eight hours, shouldn’t hurt your system. Anything longer than that expects damage to the unit and your indoor air quality.
Why is my airflow so poor?
Dirt leads to a lot of issues. It could be just a clogged air filter, which in that case you can take care of the problem yourself. If the issue is still there consider checking under the belly of the evaporator coil to inspect for cleanliness. When all else fails, it typically is the blower motor and that is best handled by the professionals at Mr. Chill Heating & Air.
My energy bills are high, why is that?
Dirt and low refrigerant. A good first step is always to change the air filter. Next is to consider your refrigerant levels. Too little or too much causes different concerns.
