A clogged air filter can cause extensive damage to your system. If you check your air filter’s condition regularly, you ensure the longevity of your system. This can save yourself thousands in possible repair and replacement costs. Dirt and neglect are one of the leading causes of heating and cooling systems failing, while this can also be avoidable.
Changing the Filter
Changing the air filter in your system ensures cleaner, fresher, healthier air. This is better for everyone in your home, particularly children and the elderly. It also helps those suffering from allergies or asthma. A clean air filter means you are not constantly circulating dust, dust mites, pollen and other small particles in the air. Instead, your system will be able to purify the air, leaving it clean and healthy.
Besides protecting the HVAC system from unnecessary damage, cleaning out or changing a clogged air filter will also save you a significant amount on operating costs. A dirty air filter uses much more energy than a new, clean air filter, which means a much higher electricity bill. You can, by keeping your air filter clean and in good condition, save up to 15% on utility costs. This helps to save you time, money, and stress in the long run.
