In your home, you will want the air to be as possible. Part of this includes regular maintenance inspections to the HVAC system. Make sure to schedule an inspection so we can check the parts and components of your HVAC system.
It is recommended that you change the air filter every month, especially during the winter months when your HVAC system is most used. You will want to inspect the filter regularly to ensure it is free of dirty, dust, and other pollutants.
The most common reason a heating and air conditioning system breaks down is because of a dirty filter. As dirt accumulates, air cannot pass, or the system overheats. The motor then has to work harder. In a best-case scenario, your unit will need to be repaired. In the worst case, if your unit is older, not replacing filters could put it over the edge and require you to buy a new one. Replacing the filter is an easy way to lengthen the life of your heating system.
When that clogged air filter is working harder, more energy is being used. And when it requires more energy to make your heating and air conditioning to work, it causes your energy bill to skyrocket. When you consistently change your air filter, you can save from 5 to 15 percent on your utility costs.
This is particularly important if anyone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma. Dirty air filters worsen the air quality and can exacerbate symptoms. If you have pets, it is even more important because pet dander will accumulate in the system and then spread allergens throughout the household. It is an easy fix to replace your filter and prevent air quality from deteriorating.
Dirt clogged up in the filter can lead to polluting the entire HVAC system. That means extra repairs, service and parts that you had not budgeted for or were planning on. If you notice any issues with your HVAC system, make sure to contact us so we can inspect it as soon as possible for you.
