Protect Your AC with Filtrete Filters
We are in the middle of the 3M Mania contest with Ace Hardware, so we thought today we would feature another great 3M product for the home, Filtrete Filters.
Air conditioners require a little bit of regular maintenance to work their best, and the first question is normally, “How often should I change the filter?” For maximum effectiveness, it is recommended that you change your filters every three months. But, of course, the life of a filter can vary depending on the conditions in your home. You may need to change your filter more often if you have dirty duct work, have construction in progress, have pets, are a smoker or run a fan continuously.
All too often, we talk to people who have not changed their filter in much longer than recommended. A dirty filter will cause your HVAC unit to work much harder, which will cost you money on your utility bill. Not to mention the fact that your air quality can suffer dramatically.
Now that you know why it’s important to change your filters, why choose Filtrete? Filtrete Fitlers were created to protect your heating and air unit and to clean the air at the same time. They improve indoor air quality by capturing small particles in the air and reduce the amount of allergy-inducing particulates that create so much discomfort for many people. Evan the more expensive of the washable filters are not able to capture these microparticles as well as a Filtrete Filter. A big reason for this is the electrostatic charge held within a Filtrete Filter.
So, protect your homes internal air quality by changing your filters at minimum every three months with a quality Filtrete Filter from your local Ace Hardware.
