3 Reasons to Change Your AC Filters

July 22, 2019

The air conditioner is often in constant use during the summer season. It keeps your home’s interior cool and comfortable. Unfortunately, your air conditioner can begin to suffer if there is no proper maintenance taking place. Changing the air filter is an important part of caring for the air conditioner and ensuring your AC operates well over the years. Here are a few reasons why you should be changing your AC filters.

1. Cleaner Indoor Air

Many people don’t realize that by replacing the AC filter, it makes the indoor air cleaner and allows residents to breathe better. Dirty air filters can cause particles and contaminants to circulate back into the home when the air conditioning is operating, which can lead to allergies and respiratory issues for residents. By changing the filter routinely, you can avoid breathing in pet hair, dust, and mold spores.

2. Lower Energy Bills

How well your air conditioner operates determines the amount of energy that is used when the appliance is running each day. By changing the filter, there will be improved airflow, which will prevent the parts from working harder than necessary as they circulate cool air into the home. Although you may need to purchase more filters, you can end up lowering your energy bills and saving more money throughout the year.

3. Increase Longevity of the HVAC System

Replacing the filter every two to three months can increase the lifespan of your HVAC system because the parts won’t have to work so hard when the airflow is improved. The interior of the system will remain cleaner, which will reduce the risk of potential issues and expensive repairs over time.
