Return Air Filters are required to be maintained on a regular basis, please schedule regular filter maintenance every month as dirt and dust caught in the filter causes a drop in airflow and performance. If they do need to be cleaned, turn off the system prior to removing filters and please do not operate your system without filters.
NOTE: If your filters have not been cleaned for a long period time, please place an old drop sheet under the area to avoid dirt and dust dropping onto your floor or furniture.
- Filter Media (Fabric) type filters; Remove the filter from your system, hose the filters down gently on a clean flat surface and allow to dry in a shady area before replacing (DO NOT USE HOT WATER or DETERGENTS).
- Plastic type filters; Remove the filter from your system, these filters can either be washed gently under cold water (No hot water or detergents) or vacuum clean with a vacuum cleaner on a gentle suction cycle. Please allow filter/s to dry before replacing back into the system.
- Disposable Cartridge type filters; these filters must be replaced with new filters. Please contact your local Air Conditioning Specialist.
