Why should I change my air filter?
Learn why it is necessary to change your air filter
If you have postponed changing the air filter in your unit more than once, you probably do not realize how important it is and why. Over time, the fan motor could burn out, causing the system to overheat and ultimately fail. A new filter protects the system and helps it run years longer. There are a lot of benefits that come from changing your air filter.
A few benefits of changing your air filter
Prevent early system failure
- A dirty filter restricts airflow and makes the air handler work harder than necessary.
Save energy - A system overworked by blocked airflow consumes more energy. Reduce your home’s energy consumption by changing the filter regularly.
Lower utility bills - Greater energy consumption causes higher energy bills. The cost of replacing the AC filter partially pays for itself with lower cooling bills.
Improve air quality - In addition to protecting the AC unit from large dust particles, a filter also traps pollutants that circulate through the system. This leaves you with cleaner indoor air so you can breathe easier.
