Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? Do you have an issue with dust in your home? If you’re using a standard one inch fiberglass filter, you're doing no good for your allergies or your dust.
The fiberglass filters let almost everything through. The next step from fiberglass filter is using paper filters and if you have a one inch slot, you can put a one inch paper filter though there.
That will significantly increase the air filtration compared to a fiberglass filter but may collect enough debris that you find yourself changing them on a monthly basis. If you put in a large mechanical filter, a large, pleated paper filter, you can get cleaning that far exceeds a one inch paper filter and will last for six months to a year.
With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging, HVAC professionals are constantly looking at ways to help reduce the spread of the virus indoors.
Pets are among the best family members we could have: They love us unconditionally, they’re always happy to see us, they make us laugh, they give us comfort. In short, they make our lives infinitely better.
Having furry babies also means having pet hair and dander all over your home. The vacuum cleaner has become your best friend. Lint rollers have become indispensable. Every time you look at yourself in the mirror, you have a couple of stray hairs from your puppy or kitty stuck somewhere on your clothes.
All in all, it’s accurate to say that when we have pets, we need to be mindful of ways to keep our HVAC systems at home working efficiently.
