Air Filter Maintenance 

We’re all guilty of forgetting to changes the filters in our home, but neglecting to do so for an extended period of time can lead to increased allergens and a decrease in your HVAC unit’s performance. The HVAC expert technicians here at LimRic Plumbing, Heating & Air recommend that you follow a set schedule to swap out your air filters. The frequency with which you change your filters depends on several factors, including the type of filter you use, how many pets are in your home, and how many people live in your home.

As a general rule, standard air filters should be changed every 30 to 60 days. Check out the chart below to find the specific time to change your filters, and don’t forget to set a reminder in your phone so that you don’t forget!

Scenario Optimal Time Span
Standard Rule Every 30 to 60 Days
If You’re Allergy Prone Every 20 to 40 Days
If You Have One Pet Every 60 Days
If You Have More Than One Pet Every 30 Days
If You Have No Pets and No Allergies Every 90 to 120 Days

Four Most Common HVAC Problems

The summer is here, which means air conditioning units are working harder than ever. Throughout these years of experience as one of Charleston’s most trusted HVAC companies, we’ve come to understand the most common air conditioning problems. Most of the air conditioning woes our air conditioning company runs into today involve the following parts and components.

  1. Fuses: A burnt, damaged, or loosened fuse means a broken air conditioner. Our central air repair technicians always check fuses and replace them as necessary.
  2. Drain Lines: Debris often gets trapped and clogs drain lines. Once clogged, drain line condensation may cause extensive water damage to your home or business.
  3. Relays: Relays act as switches that automatically shift to “on” or “off” directing varying components to do as they are told.  It is common for relays to wear down over time or to become accidentally stuck.
  4. Capacitors: Damaged or burned out capacitors will need to be replaced to restore power to your air conditioning’s components. Let our central air repair technicians check your capacitators on a routine inspection before you run into problems.
