Sometimes it can be difficult to maintain wonderful air quality when you suffer from asthma. Just using a standard Heating and A/C plan without addons is often not enough. I have several media air cleaners in my lake home and recently invested in a central dehumidifier that connects to my air handler and runs even when the air conditioner is off. I keep my home spotless and disinfect although I have been noticing a lot of dust on surfaces within days of cleaning them. Granted, I live in a certain ally dusty environment, however that’s what I rely on the Heating and A/C plan for, among other things. If it’s not filtering out the dust that collects in my home from outdoors, is something wrong with the system? I spoke with my Heating and AC dealer on the phone and they asked myself and others what kind of filter I have been using in my air handler. When I told them I use a basic, flimsy filter—the a singles you’re supposed to change weekly—they urged myself and others to buy something more sizable and provide that a try. I was typically distraught of buying thicker filters for 2 primary reasons. The main a single is air flow, as I typically assumed that thicker filters block and hamper air flow which causes your component to run harder. This raises your utility bills sizably. Assuming that was true, my next thought was wondering why I would spend $10 more for a “better” filter if it doesn’t add much filtration and simultaneously blocks air flow. The worker on the phone assured myself and others that neither of my assumptions were true. Sure, there were filters in the past that drastically reduced air flow, however nowadays you could find multiple possibilities that all offer significant filtration with efficient performance. I bought a special $15 allergen filter and provided it a shot. It has only been 2 weeks and I’m already picking up less dust when I disinfect and my breathing has improved even more. I won’t take my air conditioner filters for granted ever again.
