There are several benefits for having the filter changed regularly for your HVAC system. The air will go through the filter and the pollutants will be collected and stored. This will help to improve the air quality in your home. Over time, the filter will become dirty with the contaminants from the air. As it collects them, it also helps prevent dust and dirt from getting into the HVAC equipment and causing damage. Make sure to change the filter when it is dirty or recommended so you can have the best quality air. We can also advise on when the filter should be changed, based on the home and lifestyle.
Savings Benefits for a Clean Filter
One of the benefits is that it allows for better energy savings over time as well. The utility bill will be lower each month. This is because there will be better air flow through the system. If the filter becomes clogged, it will restrict the air flow. This causes the blower to operate harder to get the air moving through the ductwork. It can also cause dirt to accumulate on coils and other parts of the HVAC system. The dust and dirt can build up on the components that will reduce the efficiency of the unit over time. If you notice any increase in the monthly bill, check the filter to ensure it is clean.
