HEPA, or high-efficiency particulate air, filters are a type of high-end air filter that is installed in your central heating or air conditioning system. Like all air filters, they work to remove airborne particles from your home's air supply before they manage to enter your HVAC system and then be transported throughout your home. However, HEPA filters are designed to be much better at capturing these airborne particles due to their unique design.
If your heating system is not working right or not at all, there may be a few things that you can do to fix the problem yourself. This will save time and money. Of course, without being a technician yourself, there are a limited number of things you can troubleshoot and fix, but the following are a few that most homeowners will have little trouble doing.
Check the battery in your thermostat
The efficiency of your air conditioning system depends on the quality of your air ducts. Ducts can develop leaks over time, allowing cool air to spill out of the ducts before it reaches the living spaces within your home. These leaks require your air conditioner to work harder to cool your home, which can increase your cooling costs and result in premature system failure.
Sealing your air ducts regularly can be a simple and effective way to eliminate air leaks- and the problems they bring.
