Temperatures in Richmond will soon be dropping. For most of us, our air conditioners and heat pumps are grateful for the break. They worked over time this summer - intaking air and disbursing colder air. All that air has to pass through out air filters which by now have had time to accumulate dust, pollen, mold and other particles from your home’s air.
