Look for a pleated filter that has a sturdy wire mesh to support it so it doesn’t collapse. You also want an air filter with a high MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating. The higher its rating, the better an air filter will be at filtering smaller particles that can cause allergies and other issues. Typically, a MERV 8 or 9 is ideal.
For your convenience, you can visit our HVAC Online Store where you can order and have filters shipped directly to you monthly.
Every heating and air conditioning repair or replace scenario is unique to your unit and expectations.
When weighing your options, consider these:
- Years in operation
- Continuous or costly repairs?
- Lackluster energy efficiency and increasing utility bills?
- Compromised indoor comfort?
You can also calculate for:
(Cost of Repair) X (Age of Old Unit in Years) < (Cost of New Unit)
Multiply the cost of repair by the age of your old unit (in years). If the result is LESS than the cost of a new furnace or air conditioner, it may be worth investing in repairs. If the result is MORE than the cost of a new furnace or air conditioner, you may want to consider replacement instead.
A Cool Zone NATE-certified HVAC technician can provide you with a customized estimate of repair costs, as well as offer equipment-specific reasons for you to consider a furnace or AC replacement unit.
