We have worked in the Douglasville air conditioning and heating business for thirty years now and, in those three decades, we can’t tell you how many times we have heard the question: “Why should I change my filters regularly?” or “But I don’t REALLY need to change my filters monthly, right? That’s just what HVAC people are supposed to tell you.” And in those thirty years our answer has never changed: Changing your filters every 1-2 months is a necessity for maintaining your heating and air conditioning system.
What are the benefits of changing filters regularly?
1. Clean air: The point of the air filter is just what the name implies. It filters out any debris coming through your heating/AC system so that the air that comes through your vents is nice and clean. Without a filter, or with a dirty filter, your home will be filled with polluted air -causing poor indoor air quality inside your home. 2. Save money: One of the easiest ways to save money on your energy bills is to change your air filters regularly. If your air filter is dirty and is full of debris, your heating/AC system has to work extra hard. This means an extra high energy bill. 3. Prevent breakdowns: Every piece of equipment has certain guidelines to follow in order to keep it in tip-top shape. For your heating/AC system, changing filters regularly is one of those priority guidelines. An air conditioning system simply cannot continue to function if it is plagued by dirt and debris and will eventually stop working. Changing your air filters monthly will help prevent unnecessary breakdowns. Changing your air filters regularly has so many benefits that it doesn’t make sense NOT to do it.
