Don’t Forget To Change Your Air Filter!
Changing your air filter is such an important part of what you, as the homeowner, can do for your HVAC system. First and foremost, replacing your air filter on a regular basis will lengthen the life of your entire air conditioning and heating system. When the air filter gets clogged up, it prevents the air from flowing properly throughout the system. Left clogged long enough, this will lead to overheating which often leads to the furnace breaking down much more quickly. By changing the filter you’re potentially saving thousands on repairs or replacements.
Another benefit to changing your filters is that a clean filter reduces the amount of energy needed to run the furnace. With a clogged filter, the system is working harder to pump the same amount of air around your home. Simply by replacing the filter you’ll be reducing your energy bill by a surprising amount. This is one of the best ways to reduce your energy use if you’re looking to be more environmentally friendly and keep your carbon footprint down.
One of the best reasons to remember to change your air filters regularly is for the quality of air in your home. A clean air filter will remove most of the dust and pollen particles that would otherwise be in the air. This can be really helpful for asthmatics or those that suffer from allergies. It’s also been found that cleaner air helps to prevent breathing problems from developing in the first place. It is very important to change your air filter regularly. Not only will it save you money and energy but it will also lengthen the life of your system.
