Clean Up Your Air Filters | Forquer Heating and Air Conditioning

Dirty air conditioner filters come with hidden dangers that you may not be aware of. These dangers can cause harm to your health, wealth and the safety of your own home.  Keeping a clean air conditioner air filter can save your family from unwanted illnesses and even better - save you money! 

The Dangers of a Dirty Filter

A dirty air conditioner filter can flare up your allergies. Dirty air filters can cause numerous physical symptoms such as tightness in your chest, fatigue, headache and cold symptoms that you’re unable to get rid of.

When an air conditioning filter accumulates dirt on the cooling coils, it allows frost to accumulate on the coils and the fans, which makes it difficult for the unit to cool your house.

If your filter is dirty, you can expect that the air you breathe in is dirty too. When you don’t clean your filter you’ll also have dirty air ducts. The unit will disperse nothing but dust, dirt and allergens in your home.

A dirty air filter means that your air conditioner is having to do too much work to keep your house cool. It’s much harder to cool your house with a dirty air filter, and your electric bill will rise because it’s having to run more.

Another issue with a dirty air filter is that you’ll receive reduced air flow. Air conditioners are built to work with internal air flow, and that isn’t happening if you have a dirty air filter. Having a dirty air filter could cause your air conditioner to malfunction. It’ll also raise your electric bill as the unit struggles to take in air.

The Benefits of a Clean Air Conditioner Filter

Having a clean air conditioner filter will make a significant improvement in improving the air quality in your house. You’ll no longer have to worry about pollen, dirt, dust and dander causing havoc to your allergies. If someone in your household has allergies or asthma, it’s best to clean your air conditioner filters frequently.

By keeping your air conditioning filter as clean as possible, you’ll help improve the lifespan of the unit. The system will run easier and smoother.

Another benefit of cleaning your filters is that you’ll be able to save money on your electric bill.
Keeping your air conditioner filter clean benefits everyone in your household. Having a clean air filter will improve the air quality in your home, improve the lifespan of the unit and you’ll be able to save some money on your electric bill. It’s important to clean your air conditioner filters regularly to avoid any issues.

The best way to prevent the dangers listed above is to stay on a maintenance schedule. If you'd like to stay on top of your air filter, contact us today and we'll take care of you!

When it comes to protecting your home, you want to ensure that you have every safety measure in place. You may have an alarm system for intruders, a smoke alarm to alert your family in case of fire - but what about protection from things you cant see? Were not talking about ghosts, but something that is even scarier: Carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide (CO) is a by-product of combustion, present whenever fuel is burned. Prolonged exposure can lead to lasting health problems and even death. Since carbon monoxide is virtually undetectable, carbon monoxide poisoning is quite common. In fact, the CDC estimates that more than 20,000 Americans go to the emergency room each year due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Monitoring carbon monoxide emissions in your home is so crucial to your familys safety. CO cannot be seen or smelled, which means every homeowner should invest in CO detectors to protect their family. By the time you start experiencing symptoms of CO poisoning - like lightheadedness,

Making the best use of all the spaces in your home often leads to a common question - Should I add ductwork to a three-season room to make it usable year-round?

Lets look at a few factors which come into play when making this decision. Insulation Oftentimes, in older three-season rooms, windows are abundant and insulation is lacking. These features leave plenty of room for energy leaks. In short, the structure was just not designed for comfort in extreme temperatures. Adding ductwork to this type of room would likely disappoint.

While the hot, humid summers of Ohio call for air conditioning, understanding the best unit to meet the needs of any home proves to be a foreign language to many. Lets clear the air with a few facts and figures to get you in-the-know when purchasing an air conditioner. The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) produces a rating of sorts for air conditioners. It is figured this way: The amount of cooling a given unit produces (BTU) divided by the amount of electricity (watts) used over a typical cooling season. SEER figures range from 13 to 25. Since the unit is tested on static conditions, the rating represents a units best performance. In brief, this number reflects the maximum rating. For instance, a unit rated at 13 does not perform above but may fall below this figure. Thats helpful. But, what does it mean to you, the consumer? After all, it is just a number on the box. A few answered questions might clear things up even more. What Does the SEER Rating Tell You? Efficiency.
