What if you don’t clean the air conditioner filter for a year?

What if you don’t clean the air conditioner filter for a year? The question will be in your mind; here is the article for you to help.

The topic this time is “cleaning the air conditioner filter.” Air conditioner manufacturers generally recommend cleaning the filter “once every two weeks,” but many people may leave it because it is troublesome.

Then, what will happen to the electricity bill if left unattended for a year?

Daikin Industries, a major air-conditioning company, says that if you do not clean the filter for a year, you may waste about 25% of your electricity bill.

The air conditioner controls the room temperature by taking in air with an indoor unit and returning it to the room by cooling or warming it.

Since the filter has the role of stopping dust from entering the inside, dust will inevitably collect in a sense.

If you do not clean it, the airflow will be obstructed, the air conditioner will not work well, and power consumption will increase wastefully.

Moreover, according to a questionnaire survey by Daikin Industries, about 32.7% of people regularly clean the air conditioner filters. “There is still a lot of room for ingenuity.

If such power-saving techniques are widely recognized, it will lead to reasonable energy-saving and power-saving habits.”

So what is the right interval between cleaning filters?

You will improve efficiency if you clean the filters at least once a month and in summer at least twice a month.

Clean your air conditioner’s filter by shaking it out. This will remove any excess water that may have settled on the surface.
