Air filters are vital to the performance of your air conditioner and the quality of your indoor air. Traditional air filters are effective, but pleated filters have a greater surface area to capture more airborne particles.
This video explains the difference between spun-fiberglass filters and pleated filters. Spun filters allow for greater airflow, but they also allow more particles to pass through them. Pleated filters catch more dust and allergens, which is especially important in desert environments. You should check your air filter at least once per month and change it as necessary. By reducing the pollutants in the air, you can increase the efficiency of your AC unit and save money on your electric bills.
