Your heating and cooling system equipment runs best when properly maintained. One of the easiest ways to maintain your system is to change your filters on a regular basis. The more clogged your filters are, the more energy is wasted in trying to blow air through them. This makes it harder for your home to reach the desired temperature, which keeps your HVAC system running longer and costs you more money.
Clogged filters are less able to pick up dust, pollen, mold and other particulates circulating in your home. Replacing these filters when they get dirty or clogged will keep you from breathing in these particles and help improve your overall respiratory health. This is especially important if anyone in your house suffers from asthma or other respiratory illnesses. Packs of air filters are relatively inexpensive, especially when compared to the money that you could save on your electric bill.
Not sure what sized filter to get? Just measure the dimensions of the ones already inside your home. Replacing the filters only takes a few minutes and can save you money over time.Also, having your HVAC system serviced on an annual basis will help ensure that your system is not costing your more than it should. Proper maintenance will help increase the life of the system itself.And don’t forget to check to make sure that inside and outside coils are kept clean and free of debris. Contact your local HVAC company to assist with proper maintenance and cleaning.
