A reliable HVAC system means more than just having your home at a comfortable temperature. You find it can also help lower humidity levels in the summer, and can also better the air quality inside your home. To make sure that your HVAC system is running efficiently and keeping you healthy, you need to replace your air filter.
The springtime is the perfect time to replace your air filter. This task is both simple and inexpensive, and the benefits of a new air filter will pay off in many areas. Since many people suffer allergies, especially during the spring, replacing your air filter means that fewer allergens, like pollen or bacteria, are cycling through your home’s air. Fewer allergens means fewer sniffles, and fewer itchy eyes.
Old air filters also restrict the air flow that comes and goes through your HVAC system. With the struggle to keep air flowing, that system needs to work harder to circulate air, meaning longer running times. The more your HVAC system needs to work, the more it will end up costing you. Your energy bills will be much higher, and the strain on the components within mean that repairs could come sooner than you think.
If you find it is difficult to cool some areas of your house, you could put the blame on that old air filter. You and your family want to be comfortable wherever they may be inside your home. That requires the increased efficiency that comes with increased airflow, making right now the best time to replace your air filter.
There is really no reason to not replace your air filter. It is strongly recommended that you replace your air filter multiple times a year, and at the beginning of spring is just about the most perfect time to do so.
