Air Filters

Every heating and air conditioning system has an air filter installed in it to catch dust, hair and other contaminants as air circulates through your system. Your filter needs to be changes very few months (or cleaned if it’s a permanent filter. You can improve its performance by replacing cheaper filters with a higher-end model, especially one with a higher MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) than the one you currently own. Changing filters more often will help cut down on dust levels too: once a month if you can establish a schedule.

Maintenance Sessions

Dust has a way of accumulating on your heater and air conditioning, especially during the off season when they aren’t being used as much as they otherwise would. When you fire them up, that dust will likely go straight into the ducts to spread throughout your home. A regular maintenance session can clean off that dust, and keep it from spreading, as well as attending to numerous other little steps that can prevent your system from functioning as effectively as you would like.
