Why Cleaning Your AC Blower is So Important

You might or might not know that air conditioners have blowers inside, a component which performs an important role in how well your AC system works and which needs regular cleaning to keep it functioning well.

Let’s take a closer look at what exactly the blower’s role is and why cleaning it regularly is something you shouldn’t overlook.

What is an AC Blower?

The blower is the unsung hero of your air conditioner. It is part of the air handler and circulates cool air throughout your house. It should function efficiently and smoothly, as long as it isn’t clogged up with dirt and debris.

If it does get too dusty, that can affect how well your air conditioning runs, and your comfort will be affected as well as how well your air conditioning system performs.

How to Tell if Your Blower Needs a Clean

If your AC blower is in need of a clean, there are some fairly obvious signs to let you know. Any of the following might mean your blower needs attention:

  • If your air conditioner isn’t producing as much cool air as it should despite apparently working overtime, this is a common symptom of a dust and dirt buildup on the blower.
  • Air conditioners with a dirty blower often make unusual noises. Too much debris on the blower can make the motor sound like it’s struggling.
  • Dirty overworked blowers can send your electricity usage into overdrive, meaning you will face higher bills for using more energy.
  • Because the blower fan circulates air, this means if there is dust or debris in the air, it’s going to be circulating that all over your home, possibly resulting in respiratory issues or allergy symptoms.

Why You Need to Clean Your Blower Regularly

Imagine what kind of condition your car would be in if you never had it serviced. Your air conditioner is also a machine, and all machines require maintenance to keep them running efficiently.

Regular blower cleaning matters for these reasons:

  • Clean blowers efficiently circulate the air, meaning your AC system can do its job properly.
  • An air conditioner with a dirty blower has to work harder which means your energy bills are going to skyrocket.
  • A clean blower circulates clean air, while a dirty one circulates dirt and dust particles in the air, and this can have a negative impact on health, especially for anyone that already has respiratory issues.

Overlooking the important task of cleaning out your blower on a regular basis means your air conditioning system has a reduced lifespan and eventually the blower will stop working altogether and your whole AC system will grind to a halt.

However, keep on top of regular blower care and maintenance and you can expect your air conditioner to last for 15 to 20 years.
