May 1st is here… What is that about a grey cat?

If your ac’s filter looks like a grey cat, it is time to change it! (Art by Caitlin L.)

Hello Everyone!

Because it is the 1st of May, I thought it would be a great time to remind you of a simple task that may make your life better. It may even help your pocketbook or checking account.

Oh, wait, I guess you are also wondering about the title of this post? Well, the two are related. Go check out your air filters for your air conditioner… RIGHT NOW… seriously… RIGHT NOW… I will wait for you.  If they look like a grey cat, then it is most likely time to change them.

So, why is it important to change your ac filter(s)? Well, it is best explained if you pick up a straw and pinch it off. If you try to suck air through that pinched off straw, you are going to start straining to get air through it. You will probably turn a few shades of red and maybe even purple. You will begin to sweat, and a large vein may even form in your forehead.

This is the same with a “grey cat” filter. If the filter is clogged, your ac begins to strain to get air. It puts a strain on your entire system. If your system is older, this additional stress could do your system in for good.

In addition to it being important to change your air filter (or at least check to be sure it is not filthy), it is a great time to give your air conditioner some TLC (Tender Loving Care). Call today to set up a preventive maintenance check. These “check-ups” are extremely important, and can help catch minor problems that could become major, if they are not dealt with.

A special “Thank You” to Caitlin L. for providing me with custom art for this blog.

Have a great day… and, May God Continue to Bless You and Your Family!
