Regularly inspecting and changing your HVAC’s air filter is one of the most significant parts of HVAC maintenance that prolongs the lifespan of your HVAC system. This also helps to keep your system running smoothly and efficiently. Please continue reading to identify four signs indicating it’s time to change your HVAC’s air filter.
Your Air Filters Are Dirty
A dirty air filter is generally loaded with dirt, dust, and other particles, making it obvious. A reminder to inspect and change your air filter at least once a month can ensure that it is reviewed and changed regularly. This prevents a dirty filter from interfering with your commercial HVAC system in addition to indoor air quality.
Dirty Air Vents
Dirt, dust, and other contaminants can be released into the system and evacuated through your air vents when your air filter is clogged or dirty, causing dirt, dust, and other debris to gather around your air vents. If you discover that your HVAC’s air vents are dusty, this is a sign that it’s time to replace your air filter.
Increased Utility Bills
A rise in your monthly electricity bill is another indicator that it’s time to change your air filter. When your air filter is dirty or clogged, your HVAC system must work harder to maintain your home’s temperature. As a result, it uses more energy, resulting in a larger energy bill. Whether you’ve noticed an unexpected spike in your monthly energy bill, it’s time to check your air filter and determine whether it needs to be replaced.
Bad Odors Coming From Your System
Odd, burned, or musty odors circulating throughout your home can be traced back to your HVAC system. Strange smells from your HVAC system usually result from poor or lowered air quality, a common symptom that your air filter is unclean and needs to be replaced.
