It sure seems as if the heat waves are coming earlier and earlier these days. NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, recently released a powerful graphic showing that vast swaths of our world experienced record warmth in April. Closer to home, California heat waves were shattering records in May, with temperatures close to the century mark long before summer officially begins. Unfortunately, this has also meant an early start to the fire season, not only in California, but in many western states.
This means that just about everywhere in the US, people are turning on their air conditioners earlier this year, and if the weather keeps on heating up, they will be using those AC units well into the fall. For the standard ac filter, which is good for somewhere between 30 and 60 days, this could mean changing out your standard filter 3 to 6 times in a single season!
Not only is this an expensive process, it’s unhealthy for the planet as well. Just imagine if every homeowner in your city threw out 3 to 6 filters in the trash every year. In Los Angeles, for example, that would mean finding room in local landfills for nearly 60 million AC filters during a single summer—not to mention spring and fall! When you add the smoke from burning fires to the mix, chances are those filters will have to be replaced even more frequently.
This is where permanent AC filters are the right answer. Rather than repeatedly replacing them, these permanent filters can be washed and re-used, and they are good for the life of your air conditioning unit. So with the weather heating up, earlier and hotter than before, make sure to contact us today and purchase one of our permanent AC filters. You will breathe more easily, and so will mother earth!
