In addition, the low-quality air that results from a clogged filter can lead to respiratory problems in those who breathe it.
An improperly operating filter can also damage the evaporator coil in your AC unit, which will lead to costly repairs. An old filter can create problems that can harm the rest of your cooling system. For this reason alone, changing the filter every one or two months is recommended.
