When it comes to improving indoor air quality, replacing your air filters should be at the top of your list. A good rule of thumb is to check your HVAC system's air filter around once a month. If it looks dirty, it's time for a change. Some benefits of staying on top of good air filter maintenance are:
Believe it or not, but sometimes it really is the little things that matter. Simply keeping up with changing your HVAC system's air filter can greatly increase its lifespan.
When your system can't work as efficiently as possible, it has a chain reaction effect on your energy usage/energy bills.
Dirty air filters are the greatest enemy to your home's indoor air quality. When your air filter becomes dirty and clogged, you run the risk of more and more contaminants and pollutants entering the air you breathe- including mold spores.
Something to consider in addition to adding to the lifespan of your HVAC system is being able to avoid costly and unnecessary repairs when you change your air filters regularly. Properly cared for HVAC systems are less likely to need repair services. Simply checking and changing your air filter is the number one prevention item to be marked off on your prevention checklist.
The best part about all of this is that changing an air filter is one of the easiest parts of maintaining an HVAC system. To learn more about HVAC system air filters or indoor air quality in general, contact our friendly professionals at Climate Control Heating and Air Conditioning.Back to Posts
