Importance of Clean Air Filters

This is a picture of a very dirty air filter one of our Environmental technicians replaced while performing Preventative Maintenance at a customer's house recently.  The customer hadn't changed the filter in six months to a year!  This is a big no no!  A filter this dirty puts serious strain on a system.  Changing your air filter(s) is one of the simplest and most important steps in achieving maximum efficiency and longevity in your heating and a/c units.  As simple as changing filters is, it is also one of the most overlooked by homeowners.  Dirty filters can wreak havoc on everything from compressors to blower motors to heat exchangers.  A few bucks and a couple minutes of your time at least once every 3 months can save you tons of money on future repair costs and energy bills!  Also, it's always a good idea to go with pleated filters over the cheaper fiberglass filters.  We always have them available here at the Environmental Heating & Air office and on our retail website Enviro Retail.  You'll pay a little more for the pleated filters but they catch a lot more dust and particles than the fiberglass filters.  Keep those air filters changed!
