The Importance of Air Filters

If you own a home in the Polk County, Florida area, you are very familiar with your HVAC system. It is a necessity to beat the intense heat that we see for the majority of the year. The Florida Air Express Air Conditioning Professionals want to help you get the most out of your system year-round, but it will require you to put some effort into tracking maintenance and changing your filters often. We recommend that you plan to check your HVAC system’s functionality at least twice a year. As well as the following recommendations:

Your filter is an integral part of your HVAC system. The filter removes particles from the air to improve your indoor air quality. Especially if anyone in your home suffers from allergies, you will want to keep your filter in good shape. For most families, our experts suggest that you change your filter at least every 90 days. If you have several pets or family members, you may need to change your filter more often than someone living alone. You can tell when your air filter needs replacing if the air conditioner is blowing hot or not cold enough. Dirty filters can cause your air conditioner to work less efficiently and increase your power bill as well. If you have allergies and are experiencing side effects of those more frequently, you will benefit from a new air filter as well. Furthermore, if you see dust around your vents, this is a sign of a dirty air filter, and you should change it as soon as possible.

Florida Air Express strongly recommends that you have two visits per year to do cleaning and maintenance. The first visit will be for diagnostic purposes, and the next will accomplish the cleaning and repairs of your air conditioner. This diagnostic visit is significant because we offer a full inspection of your system and submit a full diagnostic report including:

  • Ductwork static pressure check
  • Freon level check
  • Voltage readings on the condenser and air handler
  • CFM reading (cubic foot per minute cooled)
  • Visual inspection with photo documentation

Unlike our competitors, we want our customers to fully understand their system and why we recommend the services that we do.
