Spring is on its way and everyone is pumped up to tackle his or her “spring to-do list”. Unfortunately one important task that is often left off that list is changing your HVAC filters. This is one of the most important aspects of running heating and air units and by neglecting this task can cost you tons of money. Let’s take a look at the 3 most important reasons why you should change your filters on a regular basis:
1) SYSTEM EFFICIENCY
The most important reason why you should change your filters is to help increase the efficiency of your system. If the air filters are dirty, the unit will not work as well and your energy bills will increase as a result.
2) LIFESPAN OF YOUR EQUIPMENT
Clean air filters will increase the lifespan of your unit. If the filters are dirty and clogged, your unit will break down more often and put stress on the equipment. Not only will your unit work inefficiently, it will decrease the lifespan of your unit causing you to spend more money unnecessarily.
3) INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Although you may not see the initial signs of poor indoor air quality in your home due to dirty filters, you will soon enough. The purpose of the filters is to help trap contaminants, dust, debris, allergens and other particles that fly through the air. When filters aren’t changed on a regular basis, you and your family are prime candidates for allergy and asthma issues. And if you already suffer from allergies or asthma, dirty filters will only trigger those symptoms and make you even more miserable.
So when you are tackling the to-do list, don't forget to put the important task of changing your HVAC filters at the top. This simple task will help save you money and keep you and your family safe this spring!
