Changing Air Conditioner Filters to Improve Air Quality

In this day and age, especially during the summer months, it can be hard to escape air conditioning. It’s everywhere around us – at home, at the office, in our cars and the list goes on. Switching the air conditioner on is easy and convenient; however, regular upkeep and maintenance can be overlooked. Air conditioning units that are old or poorly-maintained play a role in our health and well-being as respiratory conditions or diseases may develop from the air being circulated.

Ethical Air makes it easy to minimize the chance of these health risks associated with air conditioning units and their overall upkeep. One of the major ways to keep the AC from affecting your health is by regularly changing the air conditioner filters.

Be sure that the air conditioner filters are clean and free of built-up dust or dirt. When there is too much debris built up on the filters, airflow becomes restricted. Dirty air filters will not stop outside irritants like allergens or pesticides from entering your home.

Take this precaution before it’s too late. Refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for cleaning or changing the air filters. If you still feel unsure about doing this on your own, our team of professionals can help. Contact Ethical Air today for more information about keeping your home clean while the AC is in use!

Air Ducts: When to replace or repair?


The air ducts of your home’s HVAC system may quite possibly be one of those things that you don’t think of until it’s too late – that is, once they’ve become dirty or leaky and just plain damaged. Ethical Air wants you to know when these ducts should be repaired or replaced. If the system feels like it’s simply not doing its job, it could be time to consider what needs to be done to the ductwork. Here are a few signs that will help you realize that it’s time to contact the professionals and perhaps perform indoor air quality testing.

  • Some rooms are warmer or cooler than the others
  • An increasing amount of dust around the house
  • Mold has started forming on the ductwork

There are a number of factors that contribute to the condition of the ductwork system. In addition to the warning signs, there are a few other items to consider:

  • If the air ducts are significantly old, it may be time to replace them with new ones
  • If you have just installed a new air conditioning system, the existing ductwork may not be efficient enough to handle the new system
  • If your home is relatively new, it is generally more cost-effective to repair the ductwork, rather than replace the system altogether

Ethical Air knows that deciding how to handle these HVAC woes can be tough. We want to make it easy for you. If you suspect your home’s air duct system needs some sprucing up, or you’ve performed indoor air quality testing and are not satisfied with the results, call us. Our trained technicians can repair or replace your ductwork in no time.
