Changing Your Air Filter: A Simple Task with Big Benefits.

You might be amazed to learn how much of a difference something as basic and uncomplicated as an air filter can make in your home. Your health, your energy costs, and durability of your HVAC system can all be significantly improved by routinely changing your air filter.

The change of seasons is a perfect opportunity to replace the HVAC air filter in your home. Depending on how much dirt and dust are in the air, homeowners should change their air filters every one to three months. The frequency of change might be increased by allergens like smoking, pet hair, and dander. Now is the ideal time to consider HVAC repair and maintenance for your home as we enter a new season.

Keep up with home maintenance tasks like changing your air filters regularly to prevent your house from falling into a mess. Regularly changing your air filter has a lot of advantages like 

  1. Enhance Indoor Air Quality

Your home’s air quality is directly impacted by how clean your HVAC air filter is. In actuality, the air filter’s main function is to clean the air that passes through your HVAC system. The air filter is built with fibers, typically composed of fiberglass, that capture the unwelcome substances present in the air in your home. These can contain microbes, bacteria, animal fur, dust, dirt, pollen, and more.

In addition to not cleaning the air as well as they should, unclean air filters can leave undesirable particles in your HVAC system. Regular air filter changes allow the air to be cleansed more thoroughly as it goes through by removing the dirt and bacteria that have accumulated inside the filter. Furthermore, individuals typically spend around 90% of their time indoors, which means that indoor air quality is generally poorer than outside air quality. Health problems including asthma, allergies, headaches, and even long-term illnesses like cardiovascular disease can result from breathing in air that is too polluted. Change your air filters frequently to ensure that your family is breathing clean air.

  1.  Enhance energy efficiency

Clean air filters not only enhance the quality of the air in your house but also boost energy efficiency. Your HVAC system must work harder to push air through clogged and unclean air filters. Higher levels of energy consumption are the result, which raises energy costs. Lower utility costs can actually make changing your air filters worthwhile.

Both the environment and your wallet gain when you pair an energy-efficient HVAC system with premium air filters and replace them frequently. Instead of throwing money away, replace your air filters this fall.

  1.  Increase the HVAC System’s Lifespan

Increasing the lifespan of your HVAC system is one of the key advantages of cleaning your air filters. You want to make sure your system lasts for its whole expected life because purchasing a new HVAC unit is an expensive investment. Regular HVAC maintenance, such as changing your air filters on a regular basis, can help your equipment last longer.

Your system has to work harder to push air through worn-out or unclean air filters. This indicates that your system is working harder than it needs to. Additionally, if your air filter is completely full, dirt and grime may wind up obstructing the parts of your HVAC system. Take care of your system in order to extend the life of your unit.

  1.  Less Frequent Repairs

Repairing your HVAC system can be expensive, much like buying a new HVAC unit. You can avoid needless harm to your device by performing routine maintenance and changing your air filters. When you avoid damage, you also avoid expensive repairs. The system not maintaining the proper temperature, excessive electric bills, strange noises in the system, and foul odors are some of the most frequent repair issues we find. A clogged or worn-out air filter can have an effect on all of these problems.

When you arrange routine HVAC maintenance, your air filter is changed as part of the maintenance package. Additionally, before your system breaks, our staff of knowledgeable specialists checks your system to find any problems that need to be fixed. This is essential to prevent further damage that would require even more costly repairs. By taking care of your HVAC system from the beginning, you may reduce the frequency of repairs.

5. Advances in Temperature Control

Regular air filter replacements help your HVAC system operate more effectively and produce the proper amount of heated or cooled air, in addition to all the other advantages. Your unit can better manage the inside temperature of your home when your air filters are clean and the air flows through them easily.

High-quality air filters and a smart thermostat work together to help your home maintain the ideal temperature while using less energy. That is a wise house management strategy!

Keep up with your HVAC maintenance to avoid spending more money on energy prices, repairs, or replacing your HVAC system. This can be accomplished by setting up routine maintenance appointments or by enrolling in one of the J&W Heating and Air Preventive Maintenance Plans.

Every one to three months, you should check and replace your air filters as part of routine home maintenance. This will aid in ensuring that the air in your home is clean and that your HVAC system is operating effectively. By keeping your air filters clean, you can keep your family healthy.
