Are All AC Filters The Same?
Perhaps an HVAC technician has showed you the build-up of dust and debris on your air conditioning filter when replacing it. By catching particles and other matter, AC filters protect the vital components of an HVAC system, including the blower fan and evaporator. In this way, AC filters maintain a system’s efficiency. Yet, another important job of an air conditioning filter is to remove pollen, dander, dust, and other pollutants that might contribute to respiratory conditions and allergies.
The Key To Energy Savings
Did you know? Nearly half of all HVAC systems are installed incorrectly. While it’s assumed that homeowners would be aware of this installation defect, they rarely are. That’s because a low quality installation doesn’t mean that the unit will not work. It simply means that it will not work at the capacity that it should. What consumers may notice is that they struggle to maintain a level of comfort in their home, while their energy bill skyrockets.
Quality Insulation: It Makes a Difference
When it comes to quality insulation, the average homeowner may not know which material and method is best. In some instances, it all has to do with asking the right questions. That’s why it’s important to determine where you need your installation installed (walls, cracks, crevices, framing) as well as the recommended R-values for your area or region.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms: Protection and Prevention For Your Family
Did you know? Hundreds of people die every year due to Carbon Monoxide (CO) poisoning, and high levels of the gas can kill someone in a matter of minutes. While CO is naturally emitted from fuel-burning appliances (gas, oil, kerosene, wood, charcoal) in or around the home, the levels of CO are not dangerous—when appliances are functioning properly.
