If you own an air conditioning system you probably know that filters are among the basic parts you need to clean and change regularly. The function of the filter is to purify the air that goes through the air conditioning system so that in the end we do not breathe dirty air. You will not get the very best of your central air conditioning if there is a problem with the filter because all its other parts depend on it.
With the time passing things will only worsen and your cooling system will start spending much more energy than it used to so you will spend more money on your energy bills while at the same time you will most probably not be satisfied by the final result.
You need to check what type of air conditioning you do have at home and find out how often you have to change its filter because there are some which might endure a couple of months but some endure only about a couple of weeks or even days.
No matter that you might not notice the dust particles, they are somewhere there and the routine maintenance may prevent you and your family from developing allergies.
When you go buying filters you will see there is a kind of rating- the higher the rating, the more effective it is at removing dirty particles in the air.
There are conventional fiberglass disposable filters: used in most homes and small industrial air conditioners and commercial air conditioning systems;
Pleated fiberglass disposable filters: used in many residential and commercial buildings.
Electrostatic filters: these create a static charge that collects any dust in the filter.
Electronic filters : need to be connected to an electrical power source;
Carbon filters : good if you have pets as they remove the odor problems.
