routine HVAC filter maintenanceAs a homeowner, you’ve likely taken the time to research and invest in an HVAC system that suits your family’s home comfort needs. Now that it’s up and running, it’s your responsibility to keep up with routine HVAC filter maintenance. Changing the air filter regularly has several benefits.

Extends System Life

Changing the air filter on a regular basis can prolong the lifespan of the entire HVAC system. A clogged air filter prevents the air from flowing correctly through the system. If it stays clogged for too long, the air filter can cause the system to overheat and eventually malfunction. Save yourself some money in repairs and remember to replace the filter.

Improves Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality is an important key factor to reduce allergens in your home. An air filter that remains clean removes pollen and dust from the air. For individuals who suffer from allergies or asthmatic issues, it’s important to remember scheduled air filter changes. If you neglect to replace the air filter, dust particles will begin to escape back inside your home.

Maximizes System Efficiency

When the air filter becomes clogged, it causes the HVAC system to work harder to operate and distribute the air throughout your home. A clean air filter lowers the quantity of energy required to function properly and ensures the best levels of comfort for breathing and optimal temperature.
