When was the last time you changed your furnace filter? If you can’t remember, it’s probably been too long. While it is a very easy thing to switch out, it is often overlooked by homeowners.
Why is it so important? Here are some of the benefits of regularly replacing your air filter:
- Cleaner Indoor Air – Dirty air filters worsen the air quality and can make allergy suffers’ symptoms more severe. Replace your air filter to help keep your indoor air quality at a healthy level.
- Keeping Your HVAC System Clean – A clogged filter can lead to polluting the entire HVAC system. Save time and money on system repairs just by keeping a clean filter in the system.
- Lowering Your Energy Costs – Air flow is restricted through a dirty furnace filter, causing your system to work harder to produce the same amount of heating or cooling to your home. This causes your utility usage to skyrocket.
- Extending The Lifespan Of Your System – As dirt accumulates in your filter, air can’t pass, causing the system to overheat. Depending on the age of your system, this could be the last straw.
Replacing your filter is an easy, inexpensive habit to save money, improve indoor air quality, and extend the life of your system.
