We talk about changing filters a lot here at Anchor Heating and Air Conditioning, and no, heating and air conditioning companies are not part of a world-wide conspiracy to force you into spending more money than you need to. It really is an important aspect of running heating and air units! Let’s talk about 3 of the most important reasons why you should be changing your filters regularly. If you have questions, please feel free to give us a call at 770-942-2873 or contact us online.

  1. Dirty air filters can absolutely KILL your system’s efficiency! We gets calls all the time from people who say it seems like their unit is not working as well as it used to and they have noticed an increase on their energy bills. One of the first things we check is to make sure the filters are not clogged up and full of dirt and debris. We’re not saying this is the cause of all problems, there certainly can be other things wrong with your unit causing it to not function as it should, but clogged filters can be a major factor.
  2. Keeping your air filters changed will help increase the lifespan of your equipment. We just talked about how dirty filters can cause your system to work inefficiently. When your system is working overtime due to clogged filters, you can expect breakdowns to occur sooner than they should. Clean filters will prolong the life of your units.
  3. Dirty air filters can cause poor indoor air quality in your home. Filters help trap contaminants, dust, debris, allergens and other particles that fly through the air. If your filter is dirty, it will not be equipped to catch all of these things that can cause us to feel yucky.
