I'm planning on getting a new central A/C system (conventional ducts). The heating system is separate - steam radiators.
I understand that all or most of designed systems come with some "standard" dust filter which needs to be maintained regularly. Is this filer effective for dust removal from my house air? If not, would the Aprilaire Air Cleaner (model 2200) be of any significant value?
If I use the A/C system year round on fan only when not in the cooling season for dust removal, would it have any adverse effect on the system's life, and wear and tear?
Any idea what's the typical power consumption of the fan only operation? Let's assume it's a 3.5 ton central A/C system.
Thanks to all respondents.
