In these environmentally conscious times many homeowners are looking for ways to be 'green' without breaking the bank. Air conditioner filters may not seem like an obvious place to begin but a properly maintained filter can have a significant impact on a home's energy consumption and family budget.
Home air filters were originally designed to only protect heating and cooling equipment from large, destructive air-borne particles. Today, they play a more vital role by keeping indoor air free of dust, bacteria and dust mites. But they also play a key role in your home's energy efficiency and ecological footprint.
"Maintaining your home air filter is one of the easiest and most economical ways to be environmentally friendly without spending a lot of money," says Dave Smith of DualTemp Mechanical, a Michigan based heating and cooling company. "A neglected air conditioner filter is one of the largest causes of higher energy bills, unhealthy air and wasting of the earth's resources."
Smith explains that a costly mistake many homeowners make is simply forgetting to change their filter on a regular schedule. "Everyone's so busy with daily life and finding enough time to get everything done. The farthest thing from your mind is when to change the air conditioner filter," he says. "But a forgotten filter can quickly become clogged with dust and cause the system to work harder and consume more energy than it should."
To help alleviate this situation, DualTemp has created a website that provides homeowners a convenient way to buy air filters and never forget to change them again. The site is called http://www.air-conditioner-filters-made-easy.com.
"What we've created is a smarter way to maintain your home air filters," Smith proclaims. "We'll automatically ship a quality air filter directly to your home when it's time for it to be changed. All you need to do is swap it with the old one. There's no need to remember when to change it, look up the size or drive to the store anymore. This service delivers a new filter to you before the old one loses its ability to function properly."
This unique delivery service is designed to help homeowners reduce their energy bills, improve indoor air quality and reduce their impact on the environment. Filters are shipped individually on a consistent schedule that the customer chooses. They can select when they would like to receive their filter based on their home's air quality condition.
"Your air conditioner filter affects so many areas, from the air quality inside the home to how much energy a cooling system uses. People can have a huge impact on their energy costs and be 'green' by making sure their home comfort system is running close to peak efficiency all the time," Smith says. "This only requires changing the filter on a consistent schedule and this new program provides a real solution."
