Air filters are an important part of the HVAC system.
Air filters trap dust and dirt and keep it out of your home and away from the mechanical and electrical parts of the heating and cooling system.
When the air filter cannot trap dust and dirt properly, problems can happen quickly. Dirt and dust inside of the machine can cause it to be inoperable. Dirt and dust inside of your home can cause allergies and breathing trouble. The air inside of your home is already more polluted than the air outside, so making sure that air filter is clean is an important part of keeping your home indoor air clean and healthy. I honestly didn’t even know where the air filter in my HVAC system was located until I lived in an apartment. I got my first apartment in Jacksonville and I pay $750 monthly for a studio apartment. Jacksonville real estate and rental prices are on the rise again. Florida is on a downward spiral. When I had problems with the AC unit leaking water, I called for a maintenance request. One of the first questions that the maintenance technician wanted to know was when I changed the air filter last. I had lived in the apartment for 8 months and I had never changed the air filter. The guy removed the liner and it was dark as can be. It was dirty and filled with the most disgusting dark substance. The maintenance guy told me that I should be changing the air filter each month.
