When your air filter is dirty, it becomes much harder for your HVAC system to function properly. In order to continue to heating and cooling your home correctly, it needs to work much harder – this leads to increased energy bills.
Typically, a regularly changed furnace filter can reduce energy costs annually by 5 to 15 percent.
Clogged filters are one of the leading causes of furnace repairs. As the filter becomes more and more dirty, the risk of the HVAC unit overheating grows. In this case, the HVAC motor typically requires a complete replacement.
Sometimes, a clogged air filter can even lead to a total replacement of the HVAC system. To avoid this, extend the life of your unit by regularly changing the air filter.
One of the main reasons that homeowners invest in HVAC systems is to improve the indoor air quality of their home. However, indoor air quality needs to be properly maintained by changing the furnace filter when needed, especially when you have family members who suffer from asthma or allergies.
Air filters that become clogged can quickly accumulate pet dander, and spread it throughout the house – worsening allergy symptoms. By checking the air filter each month, you can reduce allergens and maintain healthy indoor air quality.
In addition to the monthly replacement of your furnace filter, it is also important to receive regular inspections and maintenance for your HVAC system.
