It is best to replace your air filter every 3 months. However, if you have a pet or if you have allergies it is best to change them every 30-45 days. Here are three major benefits that will come if you do this on a regular basis.
- Air quality will improve. If you go a while and do not replace your air filter, you will notice dust collecting more often in the home. The dust will also heavily accumulate around vents. This means when the air is flowing, it will push all of these dust particles in the air that you and your family are breathing in. However, if you replace your filters on a regular basis, you are not allowing the dust to accumulate because the filter is not clogged so the air can flow properly and move the dust out of there.
- It will extend the life of your heating and cooling unit. When filters get clogged, the unit has to work harder to push that air through the home, because there is resistance from the clogged filter. Every mechanical system eventually will fail, but let the extra time it spends trying to push air though your filters be time that is heating and cooling your home properly.
- Helps to lower your utility bills. As stated earlier, the system will not have to work as hard and as long if your filters are clear and the air can easily flow. This causes your system to use less energy which means lower power bills for you! Maintaining your filters and keeping them clear can help save you a lot of money through the years on power bills!
