Understanding your filters
LIKE A DRYER, YOUR INDOOR UNIT has filters that need to be emptied. They play an important role in keeping dirt, dust and pet dander away from the unit's coils.
Clean filters allow a unit to function at peak performance, and contribute to the air quality in your home.
Dirty or blocked filters can cause 2 problems for your system:
Your unit system can experience a 20-30% reduction in air circulation, which will reduce heat and air conditioning
Reduced air circulation potentially reduces the life of the compressor, which is an expensive repair
HOW DO I CLEAN MY FILTERS?
Slide out the filters which will either be on top, or inside the cover which lifts up
Fully rinse filters under lukewarm water, using a few drops of mild dish soap
LET THEM DRY
Let them dry naturally. Do NOT use a towel or blow dryer.
PUT THEM BACK
