Heating and Cooling Company Because They Can Give You Suggestions on How to Best Manage This Issue.
This is What We Recommend.
Most two story homes have a difference in the temperature between the first and second floors. The main reason is the location of the thermostat.
Most thermostats are typically located on the first floor and is within 6 feet from your return air unit. When it gets too cold or too warm, the
thermostat reaches the desired temperature and the unit shuts off. The thermostat does not read what the temperature is on the second floor.
There is a switch on your thermostat for the fan in either the on or auto position. You want to make sure that the switch is in the “on” position so
that it will run your fan continuously. That will keep the rooms a little more even temperature because you are continuously circulating the air
throughout the house. Another way is to run your ceiling fans on both floors to circulate the air.
Some AC companies will suggest adding a damper to your ductwork, to force more air to the second floor. It is important to make sure your duct
system is designed to handle the extra air flow you are introducing. If you are adding a back flow damper, this may cause pressure to escape and
your duct system to come apart and even causing mold problems, if you are in a humid climate. It is very important to make sure the ductwork is
designed properly to handle the static pressure.
|A/C Filters 4 Less Announces A Lifetime Warranty On
Permanent AC or Furnace Filter Frames
The permanent AC or furnace filter holding frames come with disposable media filter pads that are made of
polyester with tackifier on one side. Permanent filter frames are a one-time purchase while replacing the
media filter pads is necessary every 6-8 weeks or as needed.
The frame and media filter pads are custom made to the exact size ordered, so this guarantees a perfect
fit with a Lifetime Warranty on the frame.
These media filter pads have a minimum efficiency reporting value of 8 (MERV 8). This is a rating system devised
by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) to standardize and
simplify filter efficiency ratings for the public. The higher the rating, the higher the efficiency of the filter. With a
MERV 8 rating these filters will remove smaller particles from the air making them one of the best filters
for people with allergies.
|How Is Your Indoor Air Quality Affected By Your AC Filters or Furnace Filters
How can your air filter possibly be this terrible? Simple. If you have neglected to change it in the past 60 to 90 days, it is costing you
money and could be damaging your system and your health. A dirty, clogged air filter will devour money faster than rising gas prices.
Every time your air conditioner or heater kicks on, your dirty filter is causing your air handler or furnace to burn more energy. A simple
thing such as not changing your filter on a regular schedule can cost you hundreds to thousands of dollars a year!
Yes, it can be a hassle to find the right filter size, drive down to the hardware store, purchase a new filter for 8-15 dollars, and drive
back home to install it. The trouble is that you forget and as you procrastinate your home comfort system just keeps on sucking dirt and
devouring your money. Changing your filter is an irritating household chore that you must consistently do, but this 5 minute chore has a
much greater affect on the condition of your family’s finances than any other chore on your to-do list.
Money aside, a dirty air filter is extremely serious. So serious that the United States Environmental Protection Agency released
information warning that indoor air pollution may be 2 to 5 times higher, and occasionally more than 100 times higher, than outdoor
levels. As a result, the EPA has ranked poor indoor air quality as one of the top five risks to public health. Considering that many of us
spend 90% of our time indoors, that is alarming news. Apart from the inherent health risks of not changing your air filters/furnace filters,
there is also a monetary risk at hand.
It is almost impossible to determine the exact cost of a dirty air filter because every home design and every comfort system is unique.
However, you can roughly estimate the dollar value cost of dirty filters by performing a simple visual inspection of your filter and
compare it to you monthly cooling bills. In today's fast paced world it's easy to overlook changing your filters. Operating your equipment
with clogged filters can raise your utility bills and even make your family sick.
|Keep Your Heating Bills Down By Changing Your Furnace Filters
The winter weather doesn't look like it is going away anytime soon, which means rising heating bills.
Now is the perfect time to make sure your home is winterized. This involves several tasks.
1. Make sure to change your furnace filter regularly. If it accumulates too much dust, it puts strain on your furnace that
can cost hundreds of dollars throughout the year. 2. Be sure your windows and doors are properly sealed.
3. Make sure you have plenty of insulation in your attic.
By following all of these simple winterizing rules, you can save up to $200 per month, which means $2400 per year.

|Tips For Improving Your Indoor Air Quality From A/C Filters 4 Less
As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. So making smart decisions about your home's
heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can have a big effect on your utility bills — and your comfort. Take these
steps to increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.
Check your 1" furnace filter every month, especially during heavy use months (winter and summer). If the filter looks dirty after a
month, change it. At a minimum, change the filter every 2 months. A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work
harder to keep you warm or cool — wasting energy. A clean filter will also prevent dust and dirt from building up in the system —
leading to expensive maintenance and/or early system failure.
Most families are on a budget, so following these tips will help keep your bills down and maintenance to a minimum.
|Changing Your AC Filters And Furnace Filters On A Regular Basis
When dirty AC filters and Furnace Filters are left in a system they begin to restrict airflow, restricted air flow means your system is
going to work harder to push the same amount of air. This can cause damage to your system and also raise your utility bills.
The harder your HVAC unit has to work, the more energy it eats away. AC and Furnace Filters should really be changed out
monthly, especially during the summer and winter months when the HVAC unit has a heavy workload.
|How do I find my AC Filters or Furnace Filter Dimensions?
Every brand of filters has a different exact size. Most AC Filters and Furnace Filters have two sizes: Standard and Actual.
If your AC Filter or Furnace Filter actually measures 15-½ x 19-½ x ¾ then the standard size would be 16x20x1.
When determining the size of your AC Filter or Furnace Filter, it is best to measure your existing Filter.
You do not want your AC Filter or Furnace Filter to fit too tight, having to force it into place could damage the Filter.
If the Filter is too small, it can get sucked up into the return and will not Filter the air properly.
|Neglecting Your AC Filters & Furnace Filters Can Cost Money!
Basic home maintenance is commonly ignored by many renters and homeowners. In the long-run, these minor tasks can cost you

Filters. It can build up too much dust, dirt and debris, which can clog your Filters completely and weaken your HVAC system. Play
it smart and buy AC Filters or Furnace Filters in bulk

|5 Ways to Go Green Without Spending All Your Green

green means turning lights out when leaving a room, turning computers off when they are not in use, using Energy Star-related
fixtures and compact fluorescent bulbs, using cloth grocery bags, carpooling, and telecommuting when feasible. Recycling all

June 1, 2011 - A/C Filters 4 Less reminds consumers to schedule an air conditioning unit tune-up prior to reaching
the hot summer months.
With summer fast approaching and temperatures on the rise, many home owners forget to schedule an air
conditioning tune up. To keep your home cool during the summer, the HVAC unit needs to be running efficiently.
A/C Filters 4 Less wants to remind consumers to have their air conditioning or Furnace unit serviced and replace their
AC Filters or Furnace Filters to avoid a breakdown during the hottest time of the year.
Annual air conditioning check-ups in the spring and HVAC furnace check-ups in the fall can help to detect any small
problems that may have arisen. Although regular checkups will not absolutely guarantee that a unit will
work perfectly throughout the season, they will reveal small problems that can lead to major, more expensive
problems in the future. “There is nothing worse than a 90 degree day and no air conditioning in your home.
We hear of these problems each year and want to help our customers avoid a meltdown.”, states Mark Platt,
owner of A/C Filters 4 Less has some basic tips to follow along with your tune-up.
Run the air conditioner for a few minutes before it is needed. Waiting until a hot day can leave you hot and
very unhappy. Change ac filters regularly. Dirty filters restrict air flow, reducing efficiency and can eventually
cause the evaporator coil to ice up. Be sure all access panels are secure, with all screws in place.
Clean obstructions such as leaves, branches, etc. from around the exterior unit.
Be sure to set the thermostat on cooling mode. Just setting the dial below room temperature will not
activate the air conditioning if it set to heat mode.

|Options For Your Furnace Filters or Air Conditioning Filters.
There are many types of air conditioning and furnace filters to choose from and efficiencies, designs and qualities vary.
Based on my 34 years experience in the (HVAC) heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry, there are basically
about eight types of air filters to choose from - such as: Pre Cut Media Filter Pads, Pleated Air Filters, Fiberglass Panel
Filters, Polyester Flat Panel Filters, HEPA Air Filters, Activated Carbon Air Filters, Hog’s Hair Filters and Electrostatic Air Filters.
Some are very efficient and reliable, while others provide less than desirable results. Also keep in mind that generic
brands are usually as good as some of the more popular brands such as Flanders Precisionaire, Purolator, Glasfloss,
Honeywell, Trion, and so on. There is really no best air filter because each type serves a purpose, but which one
is the best for you, really depends on your individual needs.
|Brand name Filters are probably the least important thing to consider in your buying decision and most brands are you are
replacing (Length, Width and Thickness). Often custom size Filters are required due to a wide range of factors. Unfortunately,

Less. We can custom make any size AC or Furnace Filters, in any brand that you are looking for.
