Spring is in the air, and so are the cottonwood seeds; which means it’s time to talk about
cottonwood filters. These filters are mounted on the exterior of your unit’s air intake, and
screen out airborne debris. Yes, they do screen that pesky cottonwood fiber, but they’ll also
prevent other airborne particles and trash from entering the air intake and fouling cooling
towers, heat exchangers and other integral HVAC parts.
Why use cottonwood filters? Because cottonwood filters can save you time, money and
headaches. Think of it this way: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Cottonwood filters prevent mechanical failure due to clogged filters. They can:
- Prevent condenser coils from getting dirty or clogged;
- Prevent compressor failure due to dirty coils;
- Reduce the number of service calls for coil maintenance;
- Reduce energy costs by helping your system run more efficiently;
- Prevent system failure and downtime.
Is it worthwhile to invest in cottonwood filters? Yes, and we recommend that you contact Twin
City Filter Service to order cottonwood filters and screens for your units before those seeds do
any damage. Cottonwood filters are available in a tremendous range of sizes, from residential
to industrial cooling towers.
Summarily, cottonwood filters save time, money and repairs. They prevent problems before
they start. They’re especially a necessity during the spring when extra airborne debris can
quickly make your HVAC system less efficient or even breakdown.
