My HVAC service said that they need to be cleaned religiously if they are to work correctly. I've seen lots of questions about ozone production, the filter not being sized correctly, etc. We are about to replace the AC (leaking, old, sort of broken) with a Bryant heatpump to match a newly installed bryant furnace (the evolution one, i forget the number)
Would it make sense to replace the Honeywell EAC we have with the new Bryant one? Their literature says the filter needs to be changed every 6 months as opposed to washing the cells in our current honeywell every month! Obviously we want to take good care of our brand new furnace and heatpump system. Should I just blow more money on the brant evolution cleaner, or can I keep on trucking with my current system, assuming I remember to do the monthly changes?
