How to Choose the Best Air Filter for Your HVAC System
Wednesday, December 07, 2016
Air Filter

The quality of your indoor air decreases in the winter months, even in a mild climate like ours. One of the best, easiest and cheapest ways to improve your indoor air is by changing your air filter regularly. Instead of turning it into a guessing game, take a look at the following information about changing your air filter and how to choose the best one for your HVAC system. 

How Often Should the Air Filters Be Changed?

Filters in your HVAC system require regular changes to remain effective. Their primary job is to keep dirt and dust from entering your heating and cooling system and preventing that same dust and dirt from circulating throughout your home. Changing the filter every one to two months will ensure your HVAC system and indoor air stay clean.

What Determines the Type of Filter That’s Best for the HVAC System?

There are a few points to consider when choosing the best air filter for your home. First, take a look at the type of system you have. The type of system will determine the type of air filter you’ll need to purchase. 

If you have individual split system heating units in each room, you’ll need filters for each. If you have a central heating system with a furnace, you’ll need one filter for the furnace unit.
Second, take a look at the types of everyday pollutants in your home. Do you have pets? Is anyone a smoker? Do you live in an area with lots of trees and pollen? This information will help you determine the best type of air filter for removing the pollutants in your indoor air. 

Regularly changing your air filter will not only help your HVAC system work at its most effective and efficient, but it will also help you breathe easier.

All City Heat and Air came out and installed a new system for me 2 years ago. We have had maintenance contracts on the system since then. Their professionalism is what stands out to me about them. It's under a service contract so it's covered by the contract. They come out every 6 months and the price covers the life of the contract.

I would recommend family and friends to very definitely consider them, and I will use them again. They are certainly very responsive, and they have been very willing to work with me. I live in Florida, but the house is in Charlotte so they have worked through some scheduling issues and some other issues with me that have been mutually satisfactory.
