Our experienced Amber HVAC technicians understand just how much damage dust can do to a heating and cooling system. As your air conditioner draws air in from the outdoors, it also inadvertently brings in dust and other contaminants. For the most part, these dust particles are prevented from coming into your home by your air filters. However, if your filters become clogged, the dust can get in and cause all manner of problems.
Let our expert HVAC professionals at Amber Air Conditioning share with you some of the ways dust particles can harm your system, as well as effective solutions to avoid these problems.Poor Indoor Air Quality
The trouble starts as soon as dust enters your vents and begins circulating in your home, greatly affecting your air quality and your family’s health. Air pollution has been linked to eye and respiratory illnesses, allergies and skin irritation, and can trigger or worsen the symptoms of asthma. Moreover, dust can also make its way inside your electronics and cause shorts and all types of damage to the internal circuitry.
Ice on the Condenser
Poorly maintained air filters no longer have the ability to collect the dust that passes through your HVAC system. This gives the particles plenty of opportunity to settle on the coils and hinder their ability to absorb heat, leading to problems with icing. When this happens, call your HVAC repair specialist immediately, and don’t attempt to scrape off the ice yourself.
Energy Efficiency Problems
Our skilled Amber AC experts also note that excessive dust in your HVAC system can cause airflow rates to drop. This means that it now has to expend more energy to maintain the same temperature and level of comfort in your home.
