If you are replacing your air conditioner filter, consider using an electrostatic filter instead of your previous model. The electrostatic filter is an air conditioning part that gives a high amount of filtration, which is perfect for those suffering from allergies or sensitivities to particles in the air.
The efficiency comes from the air being treated with an electrostatic charge (hence the name) as it moves through the filter, forcing dirt to collect in the filter instead of being blown through your air ducts. These filters have a lifetime guarantee, and should be cleaned monthly. They are a very important appliance accessory for those with asthma, severe allergies, and sensitivities to particles in the outside air.
