Reasons To Change Your HVAC Filter More Often
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.
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.
