Do You Need to Change Your HVAC Filter? April 3, 2019

Do You Need to Change Your HVAC Filter? , Yorktown Heights, New York

People rely on their HVAC systems to keep their homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. You might not even realize how much you rely on this equipment until it breaks down. Luckily, one easy maintenance task that can extend the life of your system is to replace the air filter. Some of the benefits of this practice are listed below. 

Why You Should Replace Your HVAC Filter 

Ensure Energy Efficiency

The filter on your HVAC system catches the majority of the dust, dander, and other debris circulating through the home. However, all of this debris can build up, causing your furnace or AC to have to exert more energy to push air through. If your system has to work harder, you’ll notice your energy bills start to rise accordingly. Changing your air filter regularly means you’re using less energy and spending less money. 

Extend the Life of the HVAC System

HVACDebris accumulation on a filter may also cause breakdowns, like overheating. Not only can these be costly fixes, but they also put your HVAC system through significant stress. With enough breakdowns, the entire unit will need to be replaced sooner than you expected. 

Maintain Healthy Air Quality

The air leaving the vents in your home is only as clean as your HVAC filter. A dirty filter is constantly running air through a layer of trapped debris. If you have pets, the filter helps trap their dander and make the air cleaner. Clean your filter regularly to ensure a high level of indoor air quality—especially if people in your household have allergies.
