If you’re a homeowner, then you likely have a lot on your plate when it comes to keeping your home up and running at its best. One of the most important systems in your home is your heating and cooling system, which keeps you and your family comfortable, year-round. While it’s clear that your HVAC should be in good condition, you may sometimes overlook the fact that your filters are a key factor in the successful temperature control in your home. Here are our top three reasons why you need to change your filters regularly:
1. To Keep Your HVAC Running Efficiently
Clogged or damaged filters make it more difficult for your HVAC to properly heat and cool your home. By changing your filters regularly, you work with the system to keep things moving efficiently. And when your HVAC is running efficiently, you can sit back and relax in your comfortable home with the knowledge that you’re taking the necessary steps to be a responsible homeowner.
2. To Keep Ducts and Air Clean
If you have dirty or old filters, there’s a high chance that your heating and cooling system will not be as clean as you would like. This could mean that dust particles or other air pollutants are not being properly removed from the air and are instead just being recycled around and around. You do not want your family breathing in air that is loaded with unwanted pollutants, and when you change your filters, you make sure that the ducts and the air you breathe are as clean as you want them to be.
3. To Keep Bills Down
As you may expect, a filter that is old or backed up with dust and debris will make your heating and cooling system work harder to get the job done. In this case, a harder working system does not mean better, it just means more expensive! Changing your filters regularly is the best way to keep your bills down, so you’re not paying unnecessarily high bills due to filters that are preventing the system from functioning as it should.
