Your HVAC’s air filter plays a significant role in allowing clean air to flow throughout your home, providing it with proper ventilation, and enhancing your home’s comfort levels. Dirty and clogged air filters are considered one of the most common causes of a malfunctioning HVAC unit. So, as we continue to endure the warm temperatures of spring and prepare for the approaching summer months, regularly changing your HVAC’s air filter is more important than ever. Listed below are three benefits linked to regularly changing your HVAC’s air filter.
Improve Indoor Air-Quality
Your HVAC’s air filter is designed to clean, trap, prevent, and reduce the number of unwanted elements from contaminating the air circulating throughout a home or facility. However, over time various kinds of dust, dirt, pollen, debris, allergens, microorganisms, bacteria, particles, and more can accumulate in your HVAC’s air filter, directly impacting your indoor air quality. Inhaling those elements as they circulate throughout the air is the last thing anyone wants or needs, so it’s important to regularly change your HVAC’s air filter to maintain a fresher, cleaner, and healthier indoor air quality. This is especially important for people dealing with asthma, places with pets, or during allergy season. With a new air filter, the indoor air quality in your home or commercial facility will significantly improve.
Improve HVAC Efficiency
When your HVAC’s air filter is dirty, it can reduce the air flowing requiring a lot more effort from your HVAC to produce flowing air throughout a space resulting in your HVAC consuming an excess amount of energy. However, regularly changing your HVAC’s air filter can increase its airflow, improve its efficiency, reduce the amount of energy it consumes, and ultimately save you money on your monthly energy bills.
Extends the Lifespan of Your HVAC Unit
Changing your HVAC’s air filter is essential in routine HVAC maintenance. When your HVAC’s air filter isn’t changed regularly, it can cause damage to your HVAC’s components resulting in your system malfunctioning, which can be costly, inconvenient, and impact your home’s comfort levels. A well-maintained HVAC system runs more efficiently, reducing the frequency and need for costly repairs and replacements while extending its service life, saving you time and money.
