Round Rock Home Inspector Says Change Your HVAC Filters

Replace with High Quality HVAC Filters

Dirty Air Filters

DIRTY AIR FILTERS COST YOU MONEY
Hi, I’m Charles Schiller I have been a professional licensed property inspector in Texas for over twenty years.

As a licensed home inspector I have looked at many Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning Systems. Most of these have had dirty air filters. Dirty air filters directly affect the performance of your HVAC system.

Or worst yet, using cheap filters can cause your A/C coils to look like the filter above. This can cause your efficiency of your unit to drop or even freeze your coil. In a cubic foot of air there are 250,000 dust particles 5-10 microns in size. The ones you can see in a beam of sunlight are over 10 microns.

All the organic material goes through the air handler 4 times per hour by code. It happens that the A/C Coil is a better filter than most throw away store bought filters.
I have recently been introduced to a great HVAC filter and I wanted to share this information with you.

The Solution to these issues is THE GREEN SCREEN air filter.

THE GREEN SCREEN

Ways THE GREEN SCREEN SAVES:
• Collects about twice as much as an Ultra Allergen pleated filter, lasts twice as long and is LESS expensive
• Anti-Microbial = healthier air = LESS ALLERGY SYMPTOMS
• Better Air Flow = less stress on the unit = lower ENERGY costs = $4 to $8 per/month saved per filter
• More Efficient = less maintenance = longer Life for the A/C unit
Added BENEFITS:
• Better on Environment – you only throw away the filter, the aluminum frame is permanent.
• Convenient – shipped to your door with email reminders it’s time to change the filter or to reorder.
• Residential and Commercial Applications
• Last up to two times longer

THE GREEN SCREEN air filter is engineered to collect more dust and harmful particles with Better air flow! It filters out dust mite material, allergens, mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses riding on dust particles.
Store bought filters or even the expensive 2” to 6” wide box media filters can be replaced with THE GREEN SCREEN filters for only $11, 13 or 15 dollars depending on the size of your filters. The filters last twice as long, which make THE GREEN SCREEN filters VERY ECONOMICAL.

Round Rock Home Inspector Shares A/C Information

hvac air conditioner heat transfer condensing unit air flow plantsHere’s an easy thing you can do to keep your air conditioner running as efficiently as possible: Don’t crowd the condensing unit, the outdoor part of your AC. In the photo at left, you see a common problem. I took this picture at a brand new house a couple of months ago, and there’s not a problem right now, but what’s going to happen to those shrubs planted around the condenser?

Yep. As the shrubbery gets bigger, it’s going to crowd that condensing unit. When it does, it’s going to restrict the air flow across the condensing coil. Remember the articles I wrote about the refrigeration cycle — part 1, in plain English and part 2, in a bit more technical language? If not, now might be a good time to go read them.

Basically, the condensing coil is where all the heat that got picked up from your home gets dumped outside. Your AC is engineered to remove the heat by having a designed amount of air flow over the condensing coil. If less air flows over the coil, less heat is removed. That means the whole cycle warms up a bit, and your AC works harder to keep your home cool.

You’ll pay extra for it in more than one way: (i) Your monthly electric bill will be higher; (ii) your equipment may not last as long, so you’ll pay more in repair bills and in having to replace the AC sooner.

There are a lot of ways that condensing units get their air flow blocked. The most common is from plants growing too close to the unit, as shown above. Dirt and leaves piling up around the condenser cut air flow, too. These are things you can easily control by trimming the plants around the condenser and clearing away any debris.

If enough dirt gets between the fins of the condensing unit, that’s also going to reduce air flow. When you get your HVAC system serviced each year (you do, don’t you?), the service tech should check and clean the coil if necessary.

Sometimes, the HVAC company creates the problem. The photo below shows one such case.

hvac air conditioner condensing unit too close bad airflow energy efficiency

Not only are those condensing units too close to the wall of the house and the fence, they’re way too close to each other, too. They’re going to be fighting each other for air when adjacent units are running at the same time. This is a terrible installation and should never have passed the building inspection.

So, keep some space around your condenser and let your air conditioner breathe!
