Are you changing your heating and air conditioning system’s air filters regularly? If not, you should. Here are three reasons you’ll be thankful you do.
1: You’ll Spend Less on Your Energy Bills
When your air filter is dirty, your HVAC system has to work overtime to pull in air. When it works harder, it uses more energy. When it uses more energy, you pay the price on your monthly utility bill. Changing the filter regularly will cut your heating and cooling costs.
2: Your System Will Last Longer
Your heating and cooling system get a lot of use throughout the year. When the filter is dirty, it can’t protect your HVAC equipment from the dirt and dust circulating through it. This exposes your unit to additional wear and tear that can shorten its lifespan and result in needing a new system sooner than you’d like.
3: You’ll Breathe Easier
A clean filter means cleaner air. The filter’s job is to protect the equipment, but in the process, it filters out airborne pollutants that would otherwise blow out through the vents and into your home. You’ll be thankful for cleaner air when you change your filter every three to six months.
What are you thankful for this year? If you add changing your air filter to your to-do list to make sure you have a clean one every three to six months, you’ll be thankful for the benefits. Saving money and having cleaner air are just two of them. For any heating and air conditioning questions, including what air filter is right for your system, contact the team at H.H.
