Increased consumption of electrical energy consumption of air conditioning equipment can be caused because the air filter was dirty. This is because the operation of the compressor continuously to reach the appropriate temperature set point. To overcome this, it is necessary to add a system that can detect the impurities of air conditioning air filters to prevent the squandering of electricity. The system created would turn off air conditioning work and provide information to the user through the alarm and the display on the LCD screen that the air conditioning needs to be treated. In the manufacture of this system, created an algorithm built into the microcontroller which serves to operate the working of the whole system. From the results of the testing algorithm detection system air filter Air Conditioning conducted, found that when the air filter equipment Air Conditioning has indicated dirty, then the system will disable the working Air Conditioning and activate alarms as information to the user that the equipment needs to be treated. Besides, it is also the system will inform the user via an LCD display that Air Conditioning needs to be done in connection with the treatment has indicated dirty air filter.
