Is It Better to Buy More Expensive Air Filters for My AC?

Monday, June 27th, 2022

man-holding-air-filterThe air filter for your air conditioner, sometimes referred to as the blower filter to distinguish it from the air filtration systems used to improve indoor air quality, is an important component. It does the job of protecting the interior of the air conditioner from dust and dirt infiltration. The blower fan in the AC draws air through the return air ducts, and plenty of dust, lint, and other debris come with that air. The filter stops them so only the air gets through. The filter requires routine changes (every 1 to 3 months) so it won’t become too congested.

You can purchase different types of air filters at a range of prices. Is it better to go with the more expensive filters? Or are the lower-cost filters just as effective? We often hear these questions from our customers and we’d like to address them in this post.

Monday, December 28th, 2020

red-arrow-heat-flow-diagramHeat rises. That’s a basic fact of physics, nothing will change that. It’s the reason that the second floor of a house tends to get hotter than the ground floor. It can be a problem in both summer and winter, trying to cool down the house or avoid the upper floor from overheating. 

However, an effective HVAC system for a home, particularly a newer home with good insulation, can strike the right balance and keep the second floor from getting too hot and create a good, even distribution of comfort through the house. 

You, however, aren’t currently enjoying this situation. At least not if you’re reading this intently. Your house has previously not had a serious problem in winter with a boiling second floor. But now it’s become such a sauna where going outside in the cold seems like a better option. Why is this happening?
