Better filters lengthen the life of an air conditioner

Not only do I change out my filters once every three to four weeks, but I also buy nicer filters that aren’t as cheap as ones that most people use

I have limited my shopping trips to once a week only. Even though the stores in my area all have mask policies, few of them actually enforce it. You’ll go out of your way to cover your face and your eyes only to walk near people doing the opposite inside enclosed buildings. Many of these people could be infectious and could be spreading it to countless others just by being negligent enough to walk through tight spaces without a face covering. I used to enjoy my shopping trips and now they’re just terrifying chores. The number of people refusing to wear masks in the stores is increasing monthly. Yesterday I stocked up on as many essentials as possible, from bottled water to lunch meat. I also bought a gallon of paint to put a new coat on the fence in my backyard. While I was in the hardware section, I kept struggling to remember another item that I needed for the house. Right away the item came to my mind, it was a new air conditioner filter. Not only do I change out my filters once every three to four weeks, but I also buy nicer filters that aren’t as cheap as ones that most people use. Many do not realize that the quality of air conditioner filters has a huge effect on the longevity of the air conditioner itself. You don’t want ample dust, dirt, lint, and other particulate building up on the evaporator coil inside the air handler. This could lead to a costly HVAC repair in a surprisingly shorter period of time.
