As long-time Florida residents ourselves, the experts at Del-Air understand that hot, muggy weather is a fact of life here. That’s why we provide clients with regular preventative maintenance services designed to maximize air conditioning performance. One of the best ways of preserving both the life and effectiveness of your AC unit is to take good care of your air filter.

How Air Filters Work

Almost every air conditioning system has an air filter upstream of the evaporator coil. Located in either the return grille or special slots in the duct system, the filter may look like a simple, folded piece of paper, however, it serves an extremely important task. The job of the filter is to remove particles from the air stream. Not only does the filter keep the air conditioner working efficiently, but it also improves the quality of air your family is breathing.

Importance of Changing the Air Filter

Over time, the air filter becomes overloaded with dust and other particles. When that happens, it may leave your family vulnerable to asthma, allergies, and other health concerns because the filter isn’t filtering the air the way it should. Changing the filter regularly preserves the life of your air conditioning unit while helping to ensure the air in your home stays cool and clean throughout the summer months.

Fortunately, air filters are inexpensive, so you can replace them as often as necessary. At Del-Air Heating, Air Conditioning and Plumbing, we recommend purchasing a new filter with a Minimum Efficiency Rating Value of MERV 6 or higher in accordance with the ASHRAE guidelines. For your convenience, we carry all the top filter brands including Air Bear, BDP, Electro Air, and Honeywell. We also sell custom and oddly sized filters, so you’ll never have to worry about finding the right filter for your particular system.

This was my first experience with Del-Air and they were prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. They were able to get me in on the same day for a maintenance visit, which I wasn’t expecting but very much appreciated. The office staff was pleasant and so was the technician that came out to service my air conditioners. Thanks…
