Why is it important to change the water filter in my refrigerator?

Changing your refrigerator’s water filter can seem like a daunting task. Some might even believe it isn’t necessary to change the water filter. When in reality, it is just as important as changing your air filter for your air conditioner. 

What happens if you ignore your water filter? 

As your water filter ages, toxins can build, which will eventually change your water’s taste and ultimately damage your refrigerator and your health. An old water filter will not keep dust, germs, and other unwanted molecules out of your water, which could mean your water is not safe for drinking. Your water could have a foul odor or a strange taste if you don’t change your water filter when required. Dirty and clogged filters can also lead to mechanical problems with your ice dispenser. Ultimately, not changing your water filter could end up costing you more money in repairs than a new water filter. 

Don’t let scaling and deposit build-up ruin your water quality or your appliance. While it seems pointless, changing your water filter is crucial to your refrigerator’s proper maintenance and functionality. If you haven’t changed your water filter and think your refrigerator needs servicing, call Professional Appliance Repair.
