AC Benefits

Added Benefits of an Air Conditioner

The major benefit of your home’s air conditioner is obviously cool air. Your home’s air conditioning unit can do more for you and your family than keep you cool and comfortable in warm weather.

Dehumidify – As your AC unit pulls the air in your home into the system to extract heat, humidity in the air condenses into droplets as heat is extracted and collects in a drip pan or goes into a drainage system. Humidity in your home increases with warmer weather. Having higher humidity in your home will allow for bacteria, mold, and mildew to flourish and can also increase asthma attacks.

Filter irritants in the air – Your air filter can filter pollen, dust, pet dander, mold spores, bacteria and much more from your indoor air. The higher the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Rating Value) rating, the smaller the microns the filter will be able to trap. But be cautious, too high of a MERV rating may be too restrictive and will reduce air flow and can damage your HVAC system.

Getting your air conditioning system serviced annually along with changing air filters monthly will help ensure your AC system is functioning properly and as efficiently as possible. If you’re needing to have your air conditioner serviced for the season, call us at 785-341-4193 to schedule an appointment with one of our technicians!
