Good morning all.
This is Jack from Active Air Inc . Welcome to my blog
The cooling season is almost here and with the first hot day comes a rush of service calls.
Many of these calls are very simple to solve by changing the furnace filter.
I recommend a pleated merv 8 filter for most applications.
When I speak to customers they usually question what that means.
A pleated filter is not flat but in fact has many pleats to increase the surface area which allows the filter to hold more dust.
The merv rating is a number given to indicate the efficiency of the filter. The higher the number, the higher it's efficiency. A merv 8 is a medium efficiency.
The more efficient the filter, the smaller the dust particles it will trap .
More on filters later but please remember to change it now.
It may save you a service call and will increase your A/C's efficiency.
