Standard filters work to keep your system and its ductwork clean, but they don’t really improve indoor air quality. To do that you need a media filter. The media filter rests between the main return duct and the blower cabinet and will improve dust and particle removal by seven times that of a standard filter. However, upgrading to a pleated media filter will remove everything from insecticide dust to airborne viruses from the filtered air. Always choose a filter that matches your blower’s capacity. For optimum efficiency and filtration, Wilson’s Refrigeration & A/C Service, Inc recommends that you replace your disposable filters at least once a month. If you have washable filters, they should be cleaned once a month.
Wilson's Refrigeration and A/C Service has been providing me with excellent maintenance on my home HVAC for over 10 years, extending the life of my unit considerably. Their techs are knowledgeable, responsive, skilled, and pleasant to deal with. They are available 24/7 and prompt when an occasional emergency occurs, especially after hours. Most recently, after thorough consultation with Jimmy, we elected to replace our aging unit with a carefully selected top of the line hybrid HVAC (electric and gas). I couldn't be more pleased with our new unit and their continued maintenance. They are good people to deal with.
