Every air conditioning and heating system that heats up air and moves it through the vents should have an air filter. This filter serves two major purposes.

There are a number of factors that can affect your whole home cooling, and one of these factors is daytime heat gain. As you can probably guess, the term “daytime heat gain” refers to extra heat your home may take on throughout the day during the summer months.
