Question about Air Conditioners
Tappan gas pack 4 ton installed 2002. One evening the house got cold and had to call a repairman. He simply sucked on the hose to the diaphram and everything started up. He switched the fan speed to med high saying that it should be operating at a higher speed. All is going well now. What type of filter should I use. Some say that don't use pleated filters because of air restrictions. Your suggestion.
Thanks for your question,
As far as what speed to run your unit, the speed should be around med, now as far as what type of filter for your system, a pleated style filter will keep the dust level down alot better than media or horse hair, these two do work but let alot of dust through, yes pleated will cause a little more air restriction, but not to the point of causing your unit to run badly, but here is the trick, you must change your filter monthly, no exceptions, to maintain the best efficancy, to lower your power bills, a clean filter is the best preventitive measure you can do for your system, now there are washable style filters on the market, they work great, all you have to do is take it out and wash it off, shake it out, and put it back in place, it costs a little more but the overall savings is worth the cost, I hope this helps to clairify your question about filters, please rate this for us , and thank you again for your question,
