When you call Green Horizon One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, you’re speaking with the AC filters and filter replacement services experts in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area.
You know how uncomfortable it can be to be in an environment without adequate air conditioning during the hottest days of the summer. Avoid experiencing that sensation in your own home or commercial building. Your best bet is to ensure that your AC system is well maintained. The first measure in good air conditioning system maintenance is ensuring that its filter is always clean.
The Purpose Of An Air Filter
Your air conditioning system brings in warm air through your home’s intake vents and cools it. As the fan sends the cooler air back into your home, it passes through the system’s air filter to remove airborne dust and dirt particles. This function is particularly important in reducing allergens, especially during the summer hay fever season. After a while, the filter can become clogged with dirt and dust, which can inhibit the proper circulation of air throughout your home. This makes your air conditioning system work harder and therefore consume up to 15% more energy.
Replacing your air filter
Green Horizon One Hour recommends replacing your air conditioning air filter at least every three months, and, possibly, more often if you see that it has become dirty. Do not try to extend the life of your air filter by cleaning it using a vacuum cleaner or water, as this is sure to damage it and cause more impurities to travel through your ductwork and into your home.
Replacing an air filter isn’t a complicated task and can be easily done by most do-it-yourselfers. The first step is to know what kind of replacement filter you will require. In most systems, the air filter is located behind a removable panel on the indoor portion of the air conditioning system. You can count on Green Horizon One Hour for a wide selection of filters sure to fit your system. If replacing your AC filter is not a job you feel comfortable doing yourself, one of our technicians will gladly complete the job for you.
