An air filter is a standard component in today’s heating and cooling systems. It’s a basic device that has several important functions in your home. HVAC electricians recommend replacing a dirty air filter with a clean one before the seasons change.
Your furnace air filter should be changed at least once a year–or more often for thinner filters–preferably just before heating season. Conducting a fall air filter replacement is a quick, easy way to improve the performance of your home’s heating system in the winter.
Changing your air filter will provide a number of advantages for your home.
Increase the lifespan of your HVAC system. Dirt and dust build up on your heating and cooling system’s air filters over time. You’re effectively forcing your HVAC system to work harder if you don’t change the air filter at the start of the season. In addition, your comfort will diminish as air becomes unable to pass through.
Reduce your energy bills. Your commercial HVAC system will have to use more energy to work when an air filter becomes blocked with dirt and dust, resulting in a rise in your energy expenditures. Cleaning or replacing your air filter on a regular basis can reduce your energy use by five to 15%.
Maintain healthy air quality. Dust, grime and other pollutants can enter your home through clogged air filters. Breathing polluted air can cause a number of health problems and aggravate existing conditions such as asthma and allergies.
Avoid frequent repairs and breakdowns. Air filters that are clogged can have a negative impact on your HVAC system as a whole. You may experience more frequent breakdowns and have to schedule repairs more often as the performance of your heating and cooling systems deteriorate. To address this, you’ll need to update your air filter in the fall.
