What Central Air Conditioning Would Be Like Without Air Filtration

Central air conditioning without air filtration? No thank you.

The relief and joy we feel when we come inside on a hot, humid summer day is something we can all relate to. It’s something we tend to take for granted. Something else we take for granted is our air filtration. Without it, we might not be as happy about coming inside. Here’s what central air conditioning would be like without air filtration.


Central air conditioning works by cooling the air as it passes through the HVAC system and blowing it out into your home. If you don’t have proper air filtration in your air conditioning, your system can get clogged with dust and dirt. When this happens, your system can’t function effectively and your air will not be as cool. Eventually, your system can shut down completely if it gets enough dirt built up on the coils.


Without air filtration on your air conditioning unit, the dirt that builds up can cause your system to break down. Air conditioning repair can be costly. Especially if it breaks down in the middle of a hot night or during the weekend when emergency repair then becomes necessary.


Not only does your air conditioning air filtration help keep your A/C unit running smoothly by filtering the air before it gets run through the system and then pushed out into your home, but the air filtration also protects you. You breathe the same air that gets pulled into and pushed out of your air conditioning system. Removing dust, pollen, dander, and other pollutants helps keep your air cleaner and helps you breathe easier.

Central air conditioning without air filtration would be less than effective, leave your system exposed to potentially damaging dust and dirt, and keep you from having the best air quality possible.
