Changing you AC filter is the most important thing you as a home owner can do to improve the longevity of your air conditioner. Improving indoor air quality, protecting your coils from harmful dust and debris, and keeping your AC efficiency levels at their peak are just a few reasons why changing your AC filter is a must especially during the summer months.
Dirty Filters Can Cause
Increased Electric Bill
AC systems now run off of the R-410a refrigerant AKA Puron. These Puron systems require much more airflow than your previous R-22 or Freon systems therefore it is best to steer clear of the ultra-thick filters. Below I have listed my top 3 filters on the market based on my first hand experience in the field.

1. Six Stage Electrostatic Washable Permanent Home Air Filter
This heavy duty filter is the best on the market right now because is allows more air flow then your typical disposable filter as well as maximum dust and particle capture. The best part is this filter is permanent so you aren’t continually shelling out money for replacement filters. I recommend washing this filter with water only once per month.
