The Kentridge Senior Living Plant Operations Shares the Importance of Changing Air Filters

Category: Senior Living

Author: Justin Roberts, Plant Operations Director

An important rule to remember when it comes to making sure your air conditioner works well, is to clean or change the air filter regularly. The purpose of the filter is to help clean the air coming into your home, it’s like a net catching all the tiny particles floating in the air. New or cleaned filters keep your AC happy and working nicely. The manufacturer or installer should suggest how often to service filters; however, if you live in a place with a lot of dirt and dust, you will want to clean the filters more often.


At The Kentridge Senior Living we understand the air conditioner needs good, quality air to do its job efficiently. Clean air filters allow the air conditioner to cool the community better, making both residents and staff feel more comfortable.

The activities I do to maintain the HVAC systems at work are to regularly inspect the condenser coils and clean them whenever necessary. I also replace the air filters every three months. A well-maintained HVAC system is essential for maintaining comfortable air throughout the building, which greatly helps to ensure resident and staff satisfaction. It also helps to prevent costly repairs on our HVAC systems.

Other than changing filters at the office, coil cleaning is essential to ensuring proper operation of the HVAC systems. Regular inspections of coils are completed to verify cleanliness.

Changing air filters is one of the most important maintenance tasks completed to extend the efficiency and life of air conditioners. Checking and replacement of filters should be completed on a regular schedule. Filters are much cheaper than air conditioner units.

Air conditioners are also smart, they are like robots notifying if something is wrong and even what is wrong! Just like you need regular visits to the doctor for a check-up, your air conditioner needs regular maintenance. Having an HVAC professional check your air conditioner on a regular basis is the best way to keep it smart and keep you cool on those hot summer days.
