Did you know that when your air conditioning system operates it isn't actually adding cold air to your home? It is actually removing the heat from your home. It does this by drawing in the warm air through a large grille, usually located near the thermostat, called the return. The return grille is one of the most important parts of your air conditioning system. The return air grille usually contains your one inch filter that filters the dirt and bacteria out of your air and it also plays a vital role in keeping your entire home comfortable. It is very important to change your filter once a month to avoid causing serious damage to your air conditioning system such as creating an air restriction which could lead to serious repairs. If your home isn't cooling the way it should or it can’t seem to keep up with the hot weather check your filter and call Air Control!
