By supplying a clean air filter for your central HVAC system, you are allowing the air to effectively and efficiently flow through the filter without having to work through dust and dirt. This ensures no extra strain is being put on the unit for it do its job and no energy is wasted.
Indoor Air Quality
Clean air filters are very important for your health. Having a dirty filter can affect the air you are breathing in your home. Here at Moore’s, we recommend changing your filter once a month to ensure you are breathing in the best quality air.
We recommend using pleated filters that can protect against the following things:
- Some mold spores
- Cat and dog allergens
- Dust and dust mite allergens
Heating and Air Conditioning
By supplying a clean air filter, in return you get a HVAC system working at its full potential. Your air filter removes up to 50% of airborne particles, including dust, hair, pollen, and dander. The accumulation of all of those things puts a strain on the operation of your heater and air conditioner. Overtime, the accumulation can cause serious and often expensive damage to your system.
Longer Lasting Equipment
The average life span of an HVAC system is 10-15 years. That is, if it is properly cared for throughout those years. As simple as changing your air filter sounds, it has a significant impact on the longevity of your HVAC system. If your filter is not changed often it puts an extra workload on all of the working parts of your system, overtime decreasing the lifespan of the unit.
Replacing your filters is a minor cost and only takes 5 minutes of your time per month to protect the health of you and your family, and to save you money and headache in the long run.
