Forced air heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems require effective air filtration for optimum energy efficiency, maintaining clean(ish) duct-work and good indoor air quality. Air filters should be changed regularly. How often they need changing depends upon a number of factors including, but not limited to:


• Presence of shedding pets
• Amount of carpeted versus hardwood floors
• Where you live – amounts of dust, pollen, etc.
• Use of wood-burning supplemental heat sources
• Presence of cigarette smoke

Rounding up your monthly bill to help others in the community

Using seven guiding principles to define how Rural Electric Cooperative conducts business within the communities it serves, not only benefits REC's members, but everyone in the community. One of the seven principles is concern for community.
One of the ways REC shows concern for community is offering a program called Operation Round-Up. This program allows REC to help others in need by having the members round up their bill.
