We expect that the air we are breathing in our homes and workplaces is clean and fresh, but unfortunately, this is not always the case. To protect your air, you must be diligent with cleaning, monitoring, and replacing air filters inside your home or office HVAC system. During the winter months, windows get shut, and the air is continually circulated through an enclosed space, so during this time, it is essential to protect your HVAC’s filters.
If a filter is turning grey with dirt and debris, the filter is not properly working. If the filter is entirely black, you must call for heating Staten Island or Heating Brooklyn because your problem is more significant than a dirty filter.
One of the primary causes of black filters is:
If mold is growing inside the system, a filter can turn black. Dampness from an evaporator coil will mix with excess dirt and dust in the systems, which is perfect breeding ground for black and sooty mold. The mold can spread throughout the system. We can thoroughly clean your systems to eradicate all mold, mildew, dirt, and dust.
Other causes include:
- Over 90 days of usage
- High amounts of pet dander, dust, and pollen in the air
- Carbon Monoxide
- Candle Soot
- Fireplace Soot
