Do you remember the last time you changed your air filter? If your answer is longer than one month, then you are probably costing yourself money and hurting the longevity of your system. At Jackson Services, we believe it is imperative to maintain a healthy system and frequently replace your filters.
Air filters do exactly as their name depicts, by filtering the air that passes through your system and trapping particulates such as mold, dust, pollen, and pet hair. Without an air filter, the particles and debris have nothing to pass through, so they cling to the coil and restrict airflow. Inadequate air flow will cause the operation of your system to decline, while energy consumption increases. The absence of a filter will also cause particulates to escape into the air resulting in more allergy related issues.
Whole House Media filters and Trane CleanEffects™ are typically larger, providing more surface area for filtration, and enabling proper airflow. They have a higher efficiency rating, making them more effective at trapping large and small particles while producing cleaner air compared to a standard 1 inch filter. They require annual or semi annual replacements, as opposed to the monthly recommendation for standard filters. Although standard one inch filters are the most common, they are not the most effective. They provide the protection that the inside of your HVAC system needs, but the low efficiency rating indicates that they are less effective at filtering larger particulates.
