Reasons To Change Your HVAC Filter More Often

Posted On: August 27, 2019

At JM Mechanical we want to help you improve the life of your system. A simple thing you can do is changing your filters every month. Here are some reasons why it is important to change filters frequently.


Air Quality

If a filter is dirty it can cause a significant decrease in the quality of air you are breathing. Filters remove airborne contaminants by pulling them from the air before it can circulate throughout the living areas of your home. A dirty filter is unable to trap the contaminants and allergens, leaving them in the air you breathe. This can present problems for those who suffer from asthma or allergies.


Extends The Life Of Your System

Dirty filters make it difficult for air to pass through, which can lead to your system overheating or breaking down. When the filter is clogged, air can’t properly circulate through your home and makes your system work harder than it needs to. This can then result in the need for repairs or a full system replacement sooner than normal.


Better Energy Efficiency and Reduce Energy Cost

A dirty filter can make your system work harder than it needs to, and this means more energy is being used. Using more energy results in higher energy bills. If you replace your filter frequently, over time you will see the difference it makes in your energy bill.


Changing a filter monthly is one of the easy things you can do along with seasonal maintenance to keep your equipment running smoothly all year round.

Fantastic service! From the staff I spoke with the two service and installation technicians, all were very informative and professional. I highly recommend JM Mechanical Heating and Cooling. I plan to utilize their services in the future for my semi- annual HVAC check-up!

Sandy G.

I was impressed by their level of customer service, and they really care about customer satisfaction. The office staff are very friendly, and they follow-up to be sure everything went as expected, and really want to help if there were any issues. Brandon is exceptional, takes the time to explain what is going on and really seems to care about his customers. A+ experience.


The woman who answered the phone was very helpful and professional and she immediately gave me available times and fortunately Jason was able to come on site today, detect the problem and I ended up needing a brand new water heater after mine had been over 12 years old. Jason was incredibly professional, courteous, fast, and respectful of my home. I highly recommend JM to anyone and if I ever have trouble again they will be my FIRST call! Thank you for the exceptional service!!

Excellent service from administration to service. JM Mechanical conducts business in an honest and ethical manner at an affordable price. Service is also extremely timely. James H. has installed both a water heater and furnace at my home in the last 6 weeks. James is knowledgeable, professional, courteous, and a pleasure to do business with; I am very pleased with both jobs. Thank you JM Mechanical; I greatly appreciate your reliability, quality and integrity.

James H. and Jeff F. were prompt as per usual this morning and gave prior notification via text messaging that they were on their way. We have nothing but nice things to say about this company. They are always clear and concise on the course of action necessary to fix the problem. Every time we have used J.M. Mechanical we have been treated with the utmost respect and have never talked down to us like some other companies have done. They installed a new heat pump for us today and we couldn’t be happier with the results. They were fast and efficient in every way and we will continue to use them on any of our future needs.
