What Do AC Filters Do?

What Do Those Air Conditioner Filters Do?

The job of the filter is to remove particles from the air stream to both keep the air conditioning system clean and to remove particles from the air.

Almost every air conditioning system has a filter upstream of the evaporator coil. This can be in the return grille or in special slots in the duct system and can be a fuzzy-looking or a folded paper filter.

As the filter does its job, it gets loaded with more and more particles. This is actually a good thing and makes the system more efficient, but it also increases resistance and reducing airflow. When this happens, it is time to change the filter. How long it will take to happen depends on how dirty the air is and how big the filter is.

If you don’t change the filter, air flow will decrease and the system won’t perform as well. Not only that, but if the filter is too dirty, it starts to become a source or air pollution itself.

If you take the filter out completely, you would solve the low air flow problem, but this victory would be short lived. The particles that the filter would have taken out will now build up on your evaporator coil and eventually cause it to fail. Replacing it with a new filter is a much cheaper option.

5 Benefits Of Air Con For The Workplace

Professionally installed air conditioning systems have many benefits in the workplace from increasing employee productivity to improved general health. Let’s take a closer look:

1. Productivity

Studies have suggested that men and women prefer slightly different temperatures. The temperature that produces the most productivity is around 21.7 degrees to 22.2 degrees (71-72 degrees Fahrenheit). Be aware of seasonal changes and vary the temperatures accordingly.

 

2. Air Quality

Busy and bustling office spaces and workplaces are breeding grounds for coughs and colds. Air conditioned air spaces can reduce the amount of bacteria and dust particles, odours, and potential allergens as the filters purify the air.

 

3. Comfort 

Offices are often too cold and uncomfortable for employees. Maintaining the temperature is important and modern systems have the ability to respond swiftly to fluctuations in temperature. Highly sophisticated systems are able to recover heat from warmer areas of a room and redistribute to cooler areas, making them highly efficient systems.

 

 

4. Noise Pollution

As your system continually works by responding to the temperature of the atmosphere you wouldn’t be aware as the systems are almost silent. Staff will remain undisturbed and uninterrupted even when the system is working at maximum capacity.

 

5. Health

Almost half of office workers believe air conditioning spreads illness. You can keep the windows closed in an air conditioned room, making for an environment with lower pollen and lower pollution levels from the air outside. The humidity of the room will also be decreased controlling the level of mould spores in the air and any other bacteria. So overall an air conditioned workplace makes for a healthier workforce and will particularly help those who suffer from respiratory illnesses.
