A common problem we recommend our customers look for with their central air conditioning systems in West Chester, OH during the summer is short-cycling. This is when the AC becomes trapped in start-up mode and shuts down before completing a standard cooling cycle. Short-cycling does immense damage to an AC over time because of the increased stress. It also makes it harder for the system to evenly cool the home and creates large spikes in electrical bills.

If you’re asking this question, you already know that your central air conditioning system has an air filter. We hope you also know that this filter must be changed routinely so it won’t become excessively clogged. We recommend changing the filter for a clean one every one to three months to prevent the blower in the HVAC system from straining too hard and wasting energy.
