It’s never too soon to start making your spring-cleaning to-do list, but while you’re at it, don’t forget about your HVAC filter. It’s one of the most important things you can do to keep your house clean and your heating and cooling system humming along. Take a look at three reasons why it should be on the list.
Reason #1: A Cleaner House
If your house seems dusty, no matter how often you clean, it could be due to a dirty HVAC filter. When the filter gets full, it doesn’t trap dust, pollen, dander, and other airborne particles as effectively. A full filter means more of those particles are floating around in your house instead of resting snugly in the filter.
Reason #2: A More Effective HVAC System
The primary job of the air filter is to protect your HVAC system. When the filter is full, it allows more dust and dirt into the equipment. Not only does this risk damage to the system, but it makes it significantly less effective.
Reason #3: Lower Energy Bills
When the air filter is full, the HVAC unit must work harder to pull air in for cooling or heating. Working harder means more energy use, which means higher utility bills. Change the filter to cut down on your heating and cooling costs.
Changing your HVAC air filter regularly has many benefits, which is why you should have it at the top of your spring-cleaning list. To find out more ways to take care of your heating and air conditioning equipment, contact the team at H.H. Hovey Heating and Cooling, Inc. today.
