One of the easiest fixes for your HVAC system is something that you can do yourself. Changing your air filter. Air filters catch many pollutants that would otherwise be floating around your home. There are many ways that changing your air filter will improve your overall heating and air system such as:Your System Will Last Much Longer:
An unclean air filter is one of the number one reasons that your HVAC system may break down. A dirty air filter does not allow air to pass through it, and therefore forces the system to work much harder, causing it to overheat, which then can cause your system to break down.
Lower Your Energy Bill:
Your heating and air system is probably the most energy consuming appliance in your household. When your air filter is dirty and clogged, the system has to work harder, which in turn means it is using way more energy. By changing out your air filter, you can reduce your energy consumption by 5-15 percent.
Better For The Environment:
When your air filter is dirty, your system has to work harder to properly cool and heat your air, therefore using more electricity. The energy is wasted because the system is working harder to do its initial job. This will cause more pollution. The more electricity you consumer, the more carbon monoxide and greenhouse gasses will be released.
Better Air Quality:
Air filters are responsible for keeping the air free of dust, most, pollen and other contaminants. When your air filter is clogged, it can not protect you from these contaminants and allergens. This can worsen allergies and asthma. It is extremely important to make sure your air filter is clean since we are officially in ragweed season.
In addition to changing your filter, we have several products that will improve the quality of the air in your home and help with allergies that you may suffer from. The Whole- Home Filtration system, Media Cabinet with MERV 10 Filter, that is installed into your existing duct work will reduce up to 85% of the particulate contaminants coming in your home, giving you hospital level filtration. The UV Germicidal Light uses the same UV light technology as hospitals. A UV light will destroy up to 99% of mold spores and 87% of airborne bacteria and viruses within your heating and air system. The Air Knight Purification System makes it possible to sterilize every inch of air in your home as well as all of your indoor surfaces. The Air Knight Purifier was designed to cure sick building syndrome by using a UV light in combination with a quad metallic catalyst; the pairing creates a chemical reaction that in turn creates vaporized hydro-peroxides. Once the fan of your HVAC system is turned on, these hydro-peroxide molecules are continuously distributed throughout your home. Call MTB Heating and Air today to hear more about these products. Remember, heating and air is as easy as MTB.
