Air Conditioner Replacement Schedule

Typically, air conditioner manufacturers recommend replacing your unit’s filters at least once every season. However, these basic guidelines do not take into account important factors such as the size of your property, usage, allergies that run in the family, the air quality where you live, or whether you have pets in your home.

For example, if you are living in a small apartment and do not have any pets, you may only need to replace your filters every six months. If you have more than one pet, you may need to replace your filters as often as once every three weeks.

If you’re unsure whether your air filters need to be replaced, check for the following signs:

  • The air filter is visibly dirty
  • The air quality in your home is deteriorating

  • Your air conditioner is not cooling your home effectively

  • Despite similar usage, your electrical bill is much higher than in previous months

These issues may point to something other than a dirty filter. The pros at Gold Star Services will visit your home, diagnose your system, and resolve any issues in record time.
