Proper HVAC filtration is at the heart of indoor air quality and provides an important service in keeping indoor environments clean and free from the dust and particulates that may reduce product yields or create other risks. Filters will only do their job and perform as specified, however, when they are maintained correctly.
Proper filter maintenance is crucial to keeping HVAC ductwork clean. If dirt accumulates in the ductwork, and if the relative humidity reaches the dew point (so that condensation occurs), then bacteria and mold may grow. This is especially the case in HVAC systems with acoustical duct liners, which are frequently used in air handler fan housings and supply ducts to reduce sound transmission and provide thermal insulation.
For all of these reasons and more, it is crucial to establish the appropriate filter change-out frequency. However, filters should be changed immediately if they become wet, microbial growth on the filter media is visible, or when filters collapse or become damaged to the extent that air bypasses the media.
Proper, routine maintenance of heating, air conditioning and ventilation systems is also a must in conjunction with routine filter changes to keep all systems operating according to manufacturer specifications and to preempt possible future failures, down time and unnecessary added repair expenses.
