One of the easiest fixes for your HVAC system is something that you can do yourself. Changing your air filter. Air filters catch many pollutants that would otherwise be floating around your home. There are many ways that changing your air filter will improve your overall heating and air system such as:
Your System Will Last Much Longer
An unclean air filter is one of the number one reasons that your HVAC system may break down. A dirty air filter does not allow air to pass through it, and therefore forces the system to work much harder, causing it to overheat, which then can cause your system to break down.
Lower Your Energy Bill
Your heating and air system is probably the most energy consuming appliance in your household. When your air filter is dirty and clogged, the system has to work harder, which in turn means it is using way more energy. By changing out your air filter, you can reduce your energy consumption by 5-15 percent.
Better For The Environment
When your air filter is dirty, your system has to work harder to properly cool and heat your air, therefore using more electricity. The energy is wasted because the system is working harder to do its initial job. This will cause more pollution. The more electricity you consumer, the more carbon monoxide and greenhouse gasses will be released.
Better Air Quality
Air filters are responsible for keeping the air free of dust, most, pollen and other contaminants. When your air filter is clogged, it can not protect you from these contaminants and allergens. This can worsen allergies and asthma. It is extremely important to make sure your air filter is clean since we are officially in ragweed season.
