How dirty is your air filter? Petrie's One Hour Heating and Air Conditioning

Last updated 2 years ago

Your air filter is a crucial component of your HVAC system. It catches all the bad air contaminants that can impact your indoor air quality and cause irritation or even illness in your home. Finding the right kind of filter will keep your air conditioning and heating system running well and your air clean and safe.

  • Seek Trusted Brands: Use only manufacturer-approved or air conditioning service-recommended filters for your systems. Filters are sized specifically for different units, so the right filter makes all the difference in effectiveness.
  • Look for Efficient Labeling: High-efficiency air filters are available for most modern units, which can actually boost the efficiency of your HVAC system as a whole while catching more pollutants. Additionally, they often require less frequent changing or cleaning.
  • Follow Manufacturer’s Instructions: Besides using approved filters, following the proper schedule for changing and maintaining your filter will help you get the most out of it. Regular changes for disposable filters is absolutely necessary for the health of your home air conditioning and heating systems, and reusable filters should be cleaned according to their instructions. Ask your air conditioning service if reusable filters are a good choice for your system or if you should stick to disposable filters instead.
