Changing the filter to your HVAC system is imperative to your system running efficiently. HVAC = Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. Keeping the filter changed will extend the life of your furnace/air conditioner, improve air quality in your home and save money on the energy bill. If anyone in your home suffers from asthma or allergies, keeping the filter changed regularly will benefit their health. If you are a pet owner, pet dander can accumulate within a dirty filter and spread allergens throughout your home.
One of the most common reasons your heating and cooling system can malfunction is because of a dirty air filter. As dirt accumulates in the filter, air cant pass through the HVAC system and the furnace can overheat and shut down or if it is air conditioner season, it can stop cooling. A dirty air filter can cause your system to struggle and work harder leading to costly repairs, it can also lead to higher energy bills. When you consistently keep your air filter replaced or cleaned, you can save as much as 15% on your energy bill.
In addition to changing your HVAC system air filter every month, it is important to invest in an annual preventative maintenance plan that will service your furnace in the Fall and your air conditioner in the Spring.
