Clean air is a huge part of our everyday life. We enjoy the feeling of a nice breeze and a breath of fresh air. If you own an air conditioner in your home, you need to change the air filter throughout the year. Most people forget to change it or ignore it thinking it is not important. But this is a huge mistake! Here are a few reasons why you should think twice before you ignore changing your air filter.
1. We all love saving money especially when it comes to energy spending. By not changing your air filter on time, it forces the fan motor to work harder than it has to which consumes more energy. So just by changing your air filter on time, it would help you save money on energy.
2. The restriction of the airflow into the HVAC system air handler from an old filter can sometimes cause added strain on the air handler fan and motor. If this is not rectified for long periods of time this might cause the system to overheat and fail.
3. Healthy air quality: if you have pets in your house, it is even more imperative to keep your air filter clean. Pet dander will build up in the system and spread allergens around the house. This will affect anyone who might suffer from allergies or asthma.
4. Most HVAC professionals recommend that you change your air filter every 4 to 6 weeks for maximum effectiveness and safety.
