Seasons are changing soon, time to buy a new filter.

The experts at the ENERGY STAR program recommend checking your air filters every month and changing them at least every three months. This simple maintenance chore can help keep your furnace and air conditioning systems running at optimal efficiency and can remove dust and other particulates to ensure the best indoor air quality for you and your family in Rock Hill, Charlotte and Fort Mill, South Carolina.

Comfort throughout the Year

South Carolina’s temperatures vary widely throughout the year. According to figures compiled by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, the record high in this area was 113 degrees Fahrenheit in 2012. On January 21, 1985, the low temperature was -19, a record for South Carolina. These extremes demonstrate clearly the need for reliable climate control systems in this area of the United States.

Benefits of Regular Air Filter Changes

Modern air filters offer a number of key advantages for homeowners, including the following:

  • Improved air flow to reduce the workload of your heating and cooling system
  • Reduced particulates and pollutants inside your home
  • Fresher, cleaner air

Changing your air filters regularly can make a significant difference in the comfort and livability of your Rock Hill home.

Choosing the Right Filters for your System

During your regular fall maintenance visit, your HVAC technician will provide you with detailed information on the various options available for your system. HEPA filters are designed to provide hospital-quality protection against mold, pollen and other particulates; some can even trap viruses and bacteria to create a healthier and safer environment for your whole family. For older systems, choosing filters that allow free air flow may be a priority to reduce stress and extend the life of your heating and cooling equipment.
