4 Main Reasons to Change Your Air Filters

You may wonder if your filter truly needs to be changed when you are not running your AC, but it gets just as much use when you switch to your furnace. Read on to learn why it is critical to replace your HVAC air filter routinely.

  1. Remove accumulated Dust and Dirt: As furnaces run for the first time since last winter, you realize how much dirt and dust has accumulated in your filters and throughout the system. Dirt and dust clog filters faster in winter than during warmer months, making it harder for the air to pass through. As this happens, the HVAC system works harder to push the air and must run longer, causing potential damage and overworking your furnace. Cleaning and replacing air filters allow the system to clear out the accumulated dust and dirt and keep the air moving evenly and efficiently.
  2. Improve indoor air quality: A clean air filter helps to decrease dirt, mold, allergens, spores, dust, and pet dander in the air by trapping them in the filter. Replacing your air filter regularly helps to ensure that most allergens and particles possible are trapped, especially if you use a high MERV-rated filter. The better the filter is rated, the less “dirty” your air will be.
  3. Lower energy bills: Making sure that your furnace and HVAC system runs efficiently relies partly on how easy it is to push the air through to your home’s rooms. A clean, fresh air filter will help your HVAC system run smoothly while a dirty filter causes the system to need to run longer, work harder, and draw more energy. This will cost you much more in the long run than it costs to replace your air filter.
  4. Keep temperatures even: With regularly replaced air filters, your air will flow evenly and strongly. Efficient airflow helps to ensure your home stays at an even temperature while using energy efficiently. Keep your rooms warm all winter without the struggle with clean, regularly replaced air filters.
