5 Things Air Conditioner Buyers Should Know Before Buying
1. Why and How to Change Filters
Dirty filters are extremely bad for your cooling system’s efficiency, to prevent any issues, you should install a new one every month during summer (or properly clean them if you’ve got the washable type). Inspect the filter’s minimum efficiency reporting value, this typically ranges from 1 to 12; the larger the number, the greater filtration it provides.
2. Why and How to Insulate
Hot attics or crawl spaces should be properly insulated to keep the air within them cool. To do this you can use three different types of insulation, batt insulation, spray foam, or rigid foam insulation. When you seal your space with batt and rigid insulation you should use foil tape.
