Choosing The Right Filter For Your Air conditioning unit

You could get several varieties of air filters for your air conditioner, like the HEPA, standard, pleated, electrostatic and electronic filters. The most typical among these are the standard, pleated, and electrostatic filters. These filters are usually installed in the walls, ceilings, furnaces, or even in the conditioning device itself.

The standard filters are made from spun fiberglass and cardboard frames, and are capable of filtering ten percent of the dust particles. These filters need to be replaced monthly. The pleated filters are more efficient than the standard ones. Their filter material is designed like a paper fan, and as they cover a bigger area, they can remove about thirty five to forty percent of the air particles. They are supposed to have a life expectancy of two to 4 months, at least that is what their manufacturers say. Ranging between $5 to $20, the pleated filters are a bit more costly than the standard ones.

The electrostatic filters catch dust particles with an electric charge. The electric charge is either built in, or is produced when the air goes through the layers of the filter. These filters are priced between $20 to $100 each. It would be sufficient for you to change the filter only once a year.

An electronic air filter has almost the same mechanism as the electrostatic filter. People suffering from allergies usually prefer this type of filter. The electronic filters are more effective than the electrostatic ones, as they do not impede the air flow inside the device in any way. You can choose any type of filter according to your requirements, but ensure that you get the conditioner coils inspected and cleaned by a professional each month.

The only way to make your air conditioner work at its best, is to change the conditioner filters at regular intervals. This is really vital, because choked up or dirty filters would block the appropriate flow of air. This would, in turn, abate the coils' capacity of soaking up heat, and naturally, your air conditioner would simply stop working smoothly.Air Conditioning Repair Fort Collins CO\nFort Collins Colorado Air Conditioning Repair
