Why do I need a good air filter ?
The primary purpose of the air filter has nothing at all to do with indoor air quality.
Since the invention of Air Conditioning, the primary purpose of and air filter is to protect the A/C equipment. Its job is to keep the coils and fan from getting clogged in your air conditioning system.
Dirty or clogged cooling coils and fan blades reduce the air flow causing the system to work harder and longer to achieve the same comfort level. This also wastes energy, causes mechanical failures, and shortens the lifespan of your equipment. This can equate to hundreds of dollars in energy losses up to thousands of dollars in repairs and replacements.
Keeping the filter clean or replacing the disposable filter is so simple, yet so easily neglected.

Why does my family need a good air filter?
Air filters, while protecting the equipment, also help clean the air that you and your family breathe.
Everything kind of particle that can get airborne in your home will eventually find its way into your air conditioning system. It is drawn in the return air grille, through the return ductwork, and back to your air conditioning unit. These particles include common contaminants like dust, mold spores, pet dander, smoke, bacteria, pollen and more.
Before these contaminants reach the equipment, they hit the air filter. Depending on how “good” or “efficient” your filter is, determines whether these contaminant get trapped in the filter, or pass through the filter to clog the coils or redistributed throughout your house.
