Why You Need to Replace Your Air Filters

Why You Need to Replace Your Air Filters

If we had to guess, we have reminded you to change your HVAC filters at least 100 times over the years. The simple fact is that changing your HVAC filters is a major key to having a well-functioning HVAC system. Beyond that, there are several specific reasons why you should make sure your filters are always clean.

Keep Your Energy Bills Lower

If your HVAC filters are dirty, they restrict the airflow within your HVAC system, forcing the system to work harder to do its job. All that extra effort shows up on your utility bill at the end of the month. Having clean filters prevents the system from working, keeping your energy bills lower.

Avoid AC Breakdowns

If your dirty filters cause your air conditioning system to work harder, there’s a greater chance that it will break down from overuse. That means more maintenance, repairs, and potentially an entirely new system, all of which cost you more money. By changing your filters, you lower the chances of having your system break down on you.

Extend HVAC Life

When your system only has to work as hard as it’s programmed to, it last longer than a system that is continuously overworked. By having to clean filters that allow your system to work as intended, you extend its life and avoid having to replace the unit too soon.
