Having a temperature controlling unit such as an HVAC system is more of a necessity than a luxury these days. This system provides a comfortable living atmosphere at home or work place. While this system may be long-lasting, they do require certain maintenance and the very basic step of these maintenance activities is to change the ac or furnace filters on a regular schedule.Filters Available:
Originally there weren’t many options when it came to the use of filters. Their basic purpose was to trap the dust and pollutants to protect the inside of the Air Conditioner from clogging. However, with the advancement in technology, now there are different types of filters available in the market for different uses. The filters being used are, Fiberglass Filters, Polyester and Pleated Filters. The selection among these filters are for either residential or commercial applications.Fiberglass Filters:
The most commonly used filters among these types are the Fiberglass Filters. They are inexpensive replaceable filters that are used in different applications. There are pros and cons of using these filters which help the user decide if they’re feasible for them. In some applications, fiberglass filters are used as a pre-filter to extend the life of the primary filter by blocking out damaging contaminants.Readily available and Easy to Replace:
Fiberglass filters are readily available, due to their high demand and low price. They can be easily purchased online or at most home improvement stores. Moreover, fiberglass filters are also easy to service as they need to be replace every 30-60 days.Furnace Equipment:
Fiberglass filters are one of the more popular filters used in furnace systems.Allergies at Risk:
The fiberglass filters are ineffective when it comes to small particles like pollen, dust, pet hair etc., which puts the health of the user at risk. The fiberglass filters can, therefore, raise a number of health concerns, especially for users that have certain allergy conditions.Change AC or Furnace Filters To Prevent A Service Call
It is a very good idea to write the date on your filter when you change it, so you will know when you put it in last. It is also a good idea to change it the same time every month (i.e. when you pay your electric bill, etc.)
Do not leave your 1 inch A/C or Furnace Filter in for too long; 2 months max. Otherwise, leaving the filter in too long can cause your unit to freeze up, start leaking water and stop working. Then you will have to call a professional just to tell you that your filter was too dirty and what caused the problem was not changing the filter on a regular basis. You would have to wait for the unit to thaw out, which in most cases, you will not have A/C for at least half a day - sometimes longer. Almost half of all service calls are caused by people not changing their filters regularly. The technician, who comes to troubleshoot the service call, will not have a filter with him for you, so you will need to have extra filters on hand. Why pay for a service call and be inconvenienced just knowing that it was because of not changing your filter.New Filters are a Great Way to Prevent Colds and the Flu
AC filters and furnace filters can help prevent germs from spreading throughout your house. Keep your house germ
free by changing all of your filters monthly.A/C Filters 4 Less Announces A Lifetime Warranty On Permanent AC or Furnace Filter Frames

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.If You Find Yourself Having Problems with the Temperature on Different Levels of Your House
Talk to a licensed 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 duct work, 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 duct work is designed properly to handle the static pressure.How Is Your Indoor Air Quality Affected By Your AC Filters or Furnace Air 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

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.

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.
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 Glasfloss, Purolator, Flanders, Trane, Carrier, 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.
Neglecting Your AC Filters or 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 big.

Maintenance on your HVAC Furnace or Air Conditioning Unit
It is a good idea to hose down your condenser coil or heat pump (the unit outside). First you want to make sure the power is off and the electrical panel on your unit is covered. You can use a garden hose, but first make sure you don’t have a spray nozzle on the end of the hose. By using your finger, lightly spray the water up and down and all around the coil, and stay away from the electrical panel. You need to make sure you do not spray the coil fins too hard to prevent damaging the coil. The older the condenser coil or heat pump, the more likely you can damage the unit, so take your time. This is a great way to save you money by increasing its efficiency and preventing breakdowns. You can turn the condenser unit back on as soon as you are finished. By performing this maintenance 2-3 times a year will allow more air to come out of your vents ultimately lowering your electric bill.

How To Understand AC and Furnace Filter Ratings
AC and Furnace filter ratings provide very important information that should not be overlooked. Most people really don't have a clear understanding of the information that is provided about each filter type. It is also important to remember that sometimes even filter retailers are a bit unclear about some of these filter ratings. Typically you will see air cleaners, electrostatic filters and electronic filters rated by efficiency only and they will not have a MERV rating. Our Flanders EZ Flow Filters, HD Polyester Filters, Pleated Filters, and Media Filter Pads do have a MERV rating and an efficiency rating.
What is a Merv rating?
Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value, or MERV for short, is a filter 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 MERV rating, the higher the efficiency of the filter. Simply stated, a MERV 8 filter will remove smaller particles from the air than a MERV 3 filter.
Energy Star Tips For Keeping Your HVAC System Efficient
Did you know that heating and cooling your home accounts for up to half of your energy costs? That amounts to a big chunk of change and you certainly want to do all that you can to keep those costs to a minimum. Keeping your home comfortable year-round is important, but we all want to maximize our energy savings at the same time. I’ve got some tips to keep your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system running at maximum efficiency.
Replace Your Dirty AC or Furnace Filters
The filter in your A/C or furnace serves more than just one purpose. They clean the air that circulates throughout your home. They control dust particles in the air. The higher end filters can even control allergens, In fact, most homeowners overlook the fact that a higher end filter helps keep the Evaporator Coil cleaner. What they do not realize, is the dirt that the filter does not trap is now being caught by the Evaporator Coil which typically sits on top of the furnace and in turn will eventually lessen the air flow and shorten the life of both the A/C unit and the furnace. Having the Evaporator Coil removed and cleaned may cost up to $400. Maintaining a clean filter allows your components to operate at maximum efficiency. We highly recommend that you check your AC Filters or Furnace Filters monthly to ensure a clean safe haven for your family.
Controlling Biological Pollutants by Changing Your AC Filters or Furnace Filters
Biological contaminants include bacteria, molds, mildew, viruses, animal dander and cat saliva, house dust, mites, cockroaches, and pollen. There are many sources of these pollutants. Pollens originate from plants; viruses are transmitted by people and animals; bacteria are carried by people, animals, and soil and plant debris; and household pets are sources of saliva and animal dander. The protein in urine from rats and mice is a potent allergen. When it dries, it can become airborne. Contaminated central air handling systems can become breeding grounds for mold, mildew, and other sources of biological contaminants and can then distribute these contaminants through the home. By controlling the relative humidity level in a home, the growth of some sources of biologicals can be minimized. A relative humidity of 30-50 percent is generally recommended for homes. Standing water, water-damaged materials, or wet surfaces also serve as a breeding ground for molds, mildews, bacteria, and insects. House dust mites, the source of one of the most air in your home is circulated through. Maintaining a clean AC and furnace filter is important in keeping these biological contaminants out of your home or office.
Winter Weather Means Your Furnace Is On Overdrive, Keep Your Filters Clean
When cold weather hits, doors and windows are closed which means less fresh air circulating through your home or office. Stale air and dirty furnace filters can carry illnesses, dust, dander, and other pollutants. The best way to ensure your home is free of all of these hazards is to check your filters monthly and change as needed (every 4-6 weeks). Indoor Air Quality, IAQ is a very important factor to not only a household, but to businesses as well. Clean air in the office means less sick days and happy, diligent employees at work. Keep your furnace and your family healthy and happy by changing your filters regularly!
Can I Wash or Vacuum My AC or Furnace Filter?
Many people try to wash or vacuum their furnace filters to extend the life. Washing your furnace filter is generally a bad idea. Many filtering materials do not hold up well when wet. Washing your furnace filter significantly increases the risk for mold or microbiological growth on the filter itself (which will release those mold spores into the air that is circulating throughout your home). Also, you can never get the filter clean enough, which puts a strain on your unit and restricts your air flow so your furnace has to run a lot longer to reach the desired temperature.
Vacuuming your furnace filter is a healthier alternative to washing your furnace filter, But Is Still Not Recommended. Although you may slightly prolong the life of your furnace filter, you will probably make a mess doing it, and a vacuumed filter will release a lot of dust and particles into the ductwork when you first re-install it. Additionally, most furnace filters are made from a delicate filtering material and are prone to ripping or tearing, which will render the filter useless.

Your Air Conditioner Filter Does More Than One Job
Many people think that an AC or Furnace filter is used only to reduce the amount of dust in their home and think of them only in that way. Although this is a very important job, it is not the only job that an air conditioner filter performs. It has another very important function that many are not aware of. This other function is possibly more important than how much dust a filter removes from your living space.
An AC filter reduces the amount of dust that collects on the evaporator coil of your air conditioning system. The evaporator is one of the four main components of an air conditioning system and is located inside of the indoor fan section. Air conditioner filters are located before the evaporator coil and remove dust before it reaches the evaporator coil.
Everyone knows that any dust that passes through the filter returns to the living space and can be a problem for allergy sufferers and anyone else who is sensitive to dust and airborne pollutants. What many people don't know is that air conditioner filters serve another important purpose. They prevent the evaporator coil from becoming plugged with dust, which will restrict the air flow and reduces the efficiency of the air conditioner and also increase your electric bill.
The evaporator coil is constructed similar to a car radiator and like your car radiator; it requires a good supply of air to work properly. As time passes dust collects between the fins of the evaporator coil and can even form a layer on the surface of the evaporator fins. This happens over a period of time and can take months and even years to cause obvious problems. If your air conditioner develops a problem with ice build up and it was never a problem in the past, there are two probable causes. The evaporator coil is becoming dirty and restricting airflow, or you are not changing your air conditioner filter as often as necessary. As air flows through the evaporator coil it becomes more and more restricted and equipment efficiency begins to decline. If this condition becomes severe it can cause equipment breakdown and lead to costly repairs. An efficient AC or Furnace filter not only cleans the air you breath it also helps to maintain your air conditioner in good working condition. The air conditioner performs at peak efficiency reduces service calls.
Nowadays, individuals, small businesses, large corporations, etc. are looking for ways to “go green”. Whether it’s around the house, the office or the warehouse, taking a few simple steps to go green can go a long way. Not only is this go green movement good for the environment, improving energy efficiency and reducing our environmental impact may also be a great way to save money and reduce energy costs. For homeowners, one of the biggest energy consumptions is your air conditioning and heating units. Changing your AC or Furnace filters on a regular basis will also help the environment and keep your coil clean. Dirty AC or Furnace filters will restrict your airflow, reducing efficiency and can cause your evaporator coil to ice up and leak water. So remember to change or upgrade your AC or Furnace Filters from AC Filters 4 Less.

Benefits of Having a High MERV Rating AC Filter or Furnace Filter
It is important for consumers to remember that not all AC Filters or Furnace Filters are designed equal. Most will opt for the cheapest filter available, but this is not always the smartest choice. This may save you money now, but over a period of time may cost much more.
1. Better indoor air quality - Indoor air pollution is dangerous to overall health. Dust, dirt, harmful micro-organisms, bacteria, mold, allergens, dust mites, pollen, dander, etc. can cause damage to your health. In extreme weather conditions, people stay indoors as much as possible. With high MERV filters you can be sure the air quality in your home is safe to breath. You have to remember to change them every month or as needed so they do not restrict your air flow.
2. Lower maintenance costs - A great benefit of high MERV filters is they keep your coil clean which keeps your monthly heating or air conditioning bills lower.
3. HVAC repair costs - Because high MERV filters keeps your coil clean, repair costs generally are much lower. The system does not have to work as hard when the filters are clean. The higher rated filters keep smaller particles out of your system and ensure fewer breakdowns. Nobody wants a broken HVAC system in extreme weather conditions. Overall high MERV rated AC filters and furnace filters are the smarter choice to keep your home or office healthy and safe.
