How AC Maintenance Can Help
There are a few steps you can take on your own to eliminate allergy triggers. Frequent dusting and vacuuming along with bi-annual cleanings will keep your air fresh and free of irritating toxins. Millian-Aire offers air conditioning services that include cleaning out your system and removing any clogs that may be bringing allergens into your Carrollwood home.
If your filter is looking dirty or dusty and hasn’t been replaced in the past 2-3 months, then you are in need of a change. Before replacing, be sure to check the rating of each filter. The minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV) rating indicates the effectiveness of the filter. The higher the rating number, the better the filter.
- Flat panel– This generic filter has a low rating between 1 and 4, and does little to improve the indoor air quality because it allows allergens to pass through and enter your home’s air.
- Medium efficiency– These are capable of filtering small particulates and have a rating of 5-13.
- High efficiency– Check with your Millian-Aire technician to see if your system can handle this high capacity filter with a MERV rating of between 14 and 16.
