How To Clean An Air Filter

Wolff Mechanical is available for Scottsdale air conditioning repair and services. The air filter is an important part of the air conditioning unit. Changing the filter every three months is important to keep energy bills down and to help the system run smoothly. Once a month you can also avoid changing the filter by removing the filter and cleaning it. By keeping air filters clean not only does it help with efficiency, but it also helps keep the air inside the home clean from debris.

Wolff Mechanical is available to change air filters, but would like to share some advice on how to clean the air filter regularly without needing to change it frequently.

How To Clean An Air Filter

What You Need

    • Water
    • Dishwashing Liquid
    • Soft-Bristled Brush
    • Vacuum

How To Clean

Almost all A/C filters are washable. Simply pull the filter out (but be careful not to damage the delicate aluminum vent behind it), and rinse it in your sink or tub. Then use a little dishwashing liquid, and scrub with a soft-bristled brush to get any additional dust or grime out. Finally, once the filter is dry, run a vacuum cleaner hose or dust buster over it to grab any additional dust. When the filter is clean and dry, just snap it back into the unit.
If you have central air conditioning, be sure to use a high-quality filter and change it out at least every three months to keep your energy bill down, your home cooler and to reduce the amount of dust, dander and allergens in the air.
