Our Salt Lake City air conditioning technicians get a lot of general questions from homeowners about air conditioning and indoor air quality. Here are a few of the more frequently asked questions we get:

Question:

Why is my AC system not putting out like it used to?

Answer:

It could be as simple as your air filter needs to be cleaned or changed. Read our section on air filters and if you are still having problems give us a call and we would be more than happy to take a look at your system.

Question:

Why is my AC system freezing up?

Answer:

This could be one of many problems including blocked return air vents, closed supply air vents, dirty filters, the wrong type of filter or low levels of refrigerant. We would be more than happy to come and look at your system, so just give us a call.

Question:

How do I stop the dust from collecting around my register?

Answer:

If dust is collecting at the registers, you may not have the right type of air filter for your system. Take a look at the filters we recommend to help fix this problem.

Question:

My air filter keeps popping. What does this mean?

Answer:

You are more than likely to have an EAC filter if you hear popping, and this means that your filter needs cleaning. If you have cleaned your filters and there is still popping, you may have damaged ionizer wires.

Question:

How can I get cleaner air without needing a more expensive filter?

Answer:

We recommend turning your AC fan on. This will circulate the air through your filter and clean your air 24 hours a day. Rocky Mountain Power states that this solution will cost around $4.00 – $5.00 more a month in electrical costs but will help prevent the motor from breaking down.
