Your air conditioning system does much more than keep your home cool or warm. It also helps keep dust and dirt from entering into circulation so you don’t have to breathe it in. AC filters help keep your air clean and healthy without letting in any diseases or dust particles that could affect your health.
Depending on what type of filters you own, you’ll have to take them out of the air conditioning unit to take a look at the size and filter type before you go to the store or get online to order new ones. When possible, it’s recommended that you buy in bulk to help keep the cost of your future filters down. In some rare cases, the air filters you use will be attached inside the unit itself and will require an air conditioning technician to come out and replace the filter for you.
If you own a furnace that helps filter the air through your home, you should consider buying 3M furnace filters. They’re the industry standard for quality and have a solid reputation both on internet reviews and from air conditioning technicians. Sites like Your Filter Depot help organize filter types and sizes, making shopping even easier. In some cases, you may find that your filter isn’t easily accessible online. Air Bear filters are gaining popularity, but they’re still a bit tough to find on the market. Find the model number and size of your filter before buying and if you have an Air Bear, make sure you’re not buying a “knock off.”
