When you want to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system, AiRCO Heating & Air Conditioning is here for you. We care about your needs and are a quick phone call away to help address any of your concerns.
Upgrading Your HVAC Filter
If you haven’t been replacing your air filter, start now! An HVAC filter is designed to trap particles like dust, dander, and debris so that they don’t circulate throughout your home. If you want your filter to be able to do its job, you need to change it every 90 days at the very least.Changing your filter keeps your system operating at optimal efficiency. It also spares you from having to deal with potential damage to your system and costly repairs. Clogged filters force your HVAC system to overwork itself and can lead to a breakdown.
You’ll want to replace or upgrade the filter for your HVAC system for these reasons:
You want cleaner indoor air quality (IAQ).A clean filter promotes healthy indoor air quality. Switching to a more efficient filter designed to work with your HVAC system could also be a smart move if you’re looking to trap the tiniest and most stubborn of all particles.
You may not have the correct filter for your HVAC system.Your current filter could have too high or low of a minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) rating and not be ideal for your specific HVAC system.Filters with higher MERV ratings can trap extremely tiny particles, including bacteria and viruses, very well. However, if it’s not compatible with your HVAC system, it could cause restricted airflow and result in high energy bills. Call our AiRCO professionals when you’re considering upgrading to a high-efficiency HVAC filter—we can help!
You’re concerned about bacteria and viruses lingering in your air.Sneezing and coughing cause germs to spread. Upgrading your HVAC filter to a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter will eliminate nearly all the bacteria and viruses in your air. Again, check with our team to ensure the filter you choose is compatible with your system so you don’t risk pushing your system into overdrive and decreasing its efficiency.
You or someone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma.Replacing your filter can help alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms. You may think staying indoors can keep allergies at bay, but household allergens lingering in your air can trigger an attack.According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 8 of every 10 people in the United States are exposed to dust mites while 6 of 10 people have contact with pet dander. Minimize exposure to these common allergens by routinely changing your filter.
