filtered. [weekly simple eco tip, 6.26]

In keeping with relevant summertime talk, this week's simple eco tip will help you maintain energy efficiency in your air conditioning.

Change your air conditioner's filter regularly. A dirty and clogged filter forces your air conditioner to run more in order to force the air through the filter. The more the AC runs, the more your electricity bill goes up. And a clean filter prevents dust and dirt from building up in the system, avoiding expensive maintenance or early system failure. It's recommended that you change your air filter every three months, but in extremely hot or cold months, check it once every month to make sure it isn't already clogged. Another benefit to having a clean filter is having better air to breathe – extra important for people with allergies.
