When was the last time someone changed the filter on your HVAC system? If it’s been a while, you might want to look into getting it changed, because changing the filter on your HVAC system can help you out in more ways than one.
Believe it or not, changing your filter can save you money. You use less power when your HVAC system is working at maximum efficiency, and neglecting to change the filter can cause a buildup of contaminants, which will cause your system to need to work harder to produce the same output. Maintaining a clean filter will help you lower your energy bill.
Better Cooling & Greater Comfort
Changing your filter can also make you more comfortable! When your filter becomes clogged with contaminants, it causes the whole system to work at a reduced capacity, which affects its ability to cool and heat your home. A clogged filter may even cause your HVAC system to overwork itself, making it susceptible to overheating, which can cause irreversible damage to your system.
Most importantly, keeping a clean filter in your HVAC system may even benefit your health. Leaving an old filter in your system allows debris and contaminants to build up, which will inevitably lead to a reduced air quality in your space. Good air quality means better health for your family, and as we enter the colder months and we spend more time inside, it is especially important to keep a clean filter in order to defend against the flu, and COVID-19.
