Imagine this. It is a hot sweltering day with temperatures reaching highs of over a hundred degrees Fahrenheit. You decide that you can no longer take the extreme heat and start walking over to the air conditioning control. You flip the switch expecting a cool refreshing breeze will give you relief from the punishing summer heat. However, instead of an invigorating stream of cool air, you get a face full of weak, dusty and barely cool air. Sucks doesn’t it?
About 90% of the time, the problem you are facing is probably due to a faulty or dirty air filter. The air filter is the mesh like sheet inserted inside your air-conditioning unit that filters the air coming into the air-conditioning unit so that it can release clean and cool air. What most people do not realize however is that the air filter that came with the air-conditioning unit is not permanent. In fact, air filters are supposed to be replaced at least every three months or as often as once a month depending on the frequency of usage and the amount of free floating dust particles in the area.
One of the best replacement air conditioner filters available in the market is Filtrete air filter by 3M. Filtrete air filter is 90% effective at capturing particles like dust, pollen and mold spores from the air passing through the filter. It also attracts and captures microscopic particles that can carry bacteria and viruses for not only a cooler but also a cleaner home.
