June Maintenance Reminder – HVAC

Posted By on June 23, 2021

Dear Residents,

Summertime is here, so we would like to remind you to check the Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system in your unit.

It is important to change the HVAC filters every three to six months depending on use. This will help keep the HVAC system running efficiently and save energy by preventing it from working twice as hard to keep the air moving in your home. Changing your filter on a regular basis will also minimize the risk of bacteria, pollutants, and allergens.

It is fairly easy to replace the filter, so we would like to encourage you to try doing it yourself! Just pull out the old filter and put a new filter back in with the arrows facing towards the HVAC/intake. Here is an instructional video for more information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_gZyCzfANM

You may use any brand filter and MERV rating of your choice. The higher the MERV rating, the better the filter is at trapping specific types of particles. However, please also keep in mind a high MERV rating would also make your AC work harder and use more energy. The most commonly used MERV rating here at Solair Wilshire is MERV 8.

Please use the following guideline for the AC filter dimensions:

  • Units on 7th – 22nd Floor: 20″ x 25″ x 1″
  • Units on 23rd Floor: 24″ x 24″ x 1″
  • Units on PH Floor: 30″ x 32″ x 2″

If you are having issues with your HVAC, we advise you to reach out to an HVAC technician as soon as possible as they are very busy during the summertime. Here are a couple of vendors that stop by Solair often:

Company Name: Orravan Mechanical

Thank You!

Sincerely,
