3 Reasons You Should Change Your Air Filter Regularly

We don’t think much about our heating or air conditioning systems when they’re working just fine. However, you should remember to change the air filter in your system every two to three months. Keep reading to learn why it’s important to regularly change the filter in your Roxboro, North Carolina, home.

Save on Energy Costs

All the air that circulates through your HVAC system goes through the filter to catch any particle pollutants. As general rule of thumb, you should change the filter every three months. However, if you own pets, your air filter will fill up faster with all the fur and hair in your home’s air. Therefore, you should change the filter every month.

A full filter makes your HVAC system work a little harder to effectively push the heated and conditioned air throughout your home. If your system is working harder, it’ll require more energy, which in turn increases your energy costs. Therefore, one reason you should regularly change out your filter is to keep your energy costs lower.

Extend the Life of Your HVAC System

If your system is consistently working harder than usual to deliver heated or conditioned air, the system’s motor will become strained and potentially break down. However, regularly changing the filter before it presents an issue will keep your system working smoothly and efficiently, extending the life of the system.

Maintain Good Indoor Air Quality

The purpose of the filter is to catch dust and other air pollutants, so a full filter cannot function effectively. If the air filter doesn’t collect the dust in your air, it’ll begin to collect in your air ducts, air registers and furniture throughout your home, contributing to poor indoor air quality. Therefore, you should regularly change your filter to maintain good indoor air quality and keep your family happy and healthy.
