Alarming Facts About Air Filters
Here’s an alarming statistic from Westinghouse: 50% of homes with central heating and A/C systems don’t get a regular filter change. In fact, 10% have never had a filter replacement. For optimum air quality, you should check your air filter every month, and replace it when it looks dirty or after three months—whichever comes first. For extra protection, install a HEPA grade furnace filter that will remove more particles overall, and also catch the tiniest ones that pass right through regular filters. As Westinghouse HVAC experts, we can recommend products and practices to improve the air quality of your home. Call us for a consultation today.
Average Life Span of an Air Conditioner
How old is your A/C system? If it’s more than 12 years, it may be time for a replacement. Even if the system seems fine, it’s nearing the end of its life and could be costing you much more to run than a newer, more energy efficient model. As heating and air experts, we can help you select a Westinghouse system that will help you save energy and money, too. Call for a consultation today.
Does AFUE Have You Confused
The terms you encounter when shopping for a new heating system can be confusing. Like AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. As with your car’s miles-per-gallon rating, a higher AFUE rating means a higher efficiency unit. An AFUE of 90% means 90% of the fuel is used to heat your home, while the other 10% is wasted in gases vented outside. Choose a higher AFUE to save more energy. As Westinghouse heating and air experts, we can help you choose the right system to optimize your home comfort and energy savings. Call us for more information today.
