Many homeowners overlook the importance of air filters. They are continuously fighting to keep contaminants out of the air your breathe. So if you don’t have a really good filter, or one that is old, dirty, and isn’t functioning efficiently, you’ll be breathing air that is full of allergens. When shopping for an air filter, look for its MERV rating, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. The experts at Ace Hi Plumbing in Loveland recommend a rating that is at least eight, which is able to trap very small particles and keep them from your home.

Once you have an efficient filter, the next step is to check and replace them regularly. Filters should be replaced at least every three month, or even sooner (we recommend every two months) if they look dirty. Consider shopping for electrostatic filters, which can be cleaned and reused, or HEPA filters, which can remove up to 99.97 percent of contaminants.


Having a professional HVAC company inspect and clean your air conditioning unit is never a bad idea. They know exactly what to look for and the best methods of cleaning it.

Ace Hi Plumbing serves Loveland and the greater Front Range area with expert air conditioning maintenance, installation, and more. Whether you need a new system or just want it inspected and cleaned, after we leave your home (in the same condition as when we entered it, of course), you can be confident you’re breathing allergy-free air.
