Filters and Dirty Coils

Posted on: December 1, 2011

Filter maintenance is critical to the A/C system’s efficiency and cooling capacity. Most fiberglass disposable filters don’t actually stop anything but the very largest pieces of dirt. All other particles are stopped by your coil, costing you higher utility bills. The coil does not have the air flow needed so it works harder and longer to cool. You might want to consider purchasing higher quality polyester filters or pleated filters, which we use exclusively at Jacob Heating & Air Conditioning. Another option is to install an electronic whole-house filter system such as our Aprilaire 5000. This is also beneficial should you have an allergy problem because it removes pollen, dust, dander, smoke and mold spores from indoor air.
