Whole House Air Filter vs Conventional
A whole house air filter is much thicker than a standard 1-inch filter that goes in your wall. Whole house filters are a large cartridge located near your air handler. Because of their girth, they don’t have to be changed nearly as frequently.
These larger systems are a bit more expensive but tend to be more effective in keeping your air clean. Not every HVAC system uses this filter set up. If you’re not sure what filter you need, give us a call! We’ve improved the air quality to homes all over Greenville, SC.
Where Does Dirty Air Come From?
Irritation to your eyes, throat, and lungs often comes from dust in the home. This dust is a combination of dust mites, pet dander, hair, mold, and other debris. When you run your AC or heater, this dirty combo of allergens is picked up and cycled throughout your home.
You can reduce these allergens with consistent filter changes. Energy Sharks Heating & Air can evaluate your home’s air conditioner filter and furnace filter. We’ll even help you determine a proper schedule for filter replacements each year.
How Often Should I Change My Filter?
Have you seen the difference between a clean air filter and one that’s littered with dust and dirt? A clogged air filter can lead to respiratory problems and illness if you let it go too long.
Your filter should be changed at least once per year. But in some households, a replacement may be needed every few months. It depends on these factors:
- Frequency of AC or heater use
- Number of family members
- Age of equipment
- Number of pets in the home
- Type of filter
Unsealed ducts can cause those allergies to flare up too. Ask us about ductwork services!
