You can run the AC system without a filter, but you definitely SHOULD NOT! The air filter in the AC/heating system keeps the inside of your air handler or furnace clean, keeps debris off the blower motor and evaporator coil, and helps ensure that your AC system runs efficiently while minimizing the likelihood of a breakdown. Dirt is the #1 cause of breakdowns with AC and heating systems, so make sure to keep a clean filter in your AC system at all times.
