Whether it’s the hottest day of the summer or a breezy spring day in Venice, Florida, you want your air conditioner to keep you as cool and comfortable as possible. Though you probably already know that you should schedule annual HVAC maintenance to keep your system running smoothly, you might not realize how important it is to change the HVAC filter frequently. From lower energy bills to better air quality, learn about three reasons why you should replace your AC filter now.
It Will Boost Your Indoor Air Quality
You can’t remove the pollen, tobacco smoke, or mold spores from the outdoor air, but you can certainly eliminate these airborne pollutants from your home. Replacing the AC air filter every one to three months keeps your indoor air quality as high as possible and can even alleviate allergy or asthma attacks. Make sure you choose a high-quality filter for cleaner air and change the filter every 30 days during the summer months.
It Will Increase HVAC Efficiency
Whether you’re going green and want to lower your household energy consumption or you simply want to save money on your monthly utility bill, you’ll appreciate the extra efficiency that comes with changing your AC filter. Since the filter prevents dust, dirt, and debris from entering the HVAC system, it’s important to replace the filter regularly to keep the air flowing freely in your home.
It Could Help Your HVAC System Last Longer
Since the AC air filter acts as a protective barrier between airborne pollutants and your HVAC system, replacing the filter regularly can help your cooling system avoid major breakdowns. Change the filter every one to three months without fail, and you could even help your HVAC system outlive its expected 10-year lifespan.
