How Regular Filter Changes Save Money

filter changes

You can save money and help the environment by changing your HVAC system’s air filter regularly. If you don’t replace your air filter often enough, the utility bills will be higher for your Montgomery, Alabama, home. Clean or replace your air filter as directed for better indoor air quality, and for an HVAC system that lasts longer and is more efficient.

More Durability

If your HVAC system has to work harder because of a clogged filter, you’ll have to replace it sooner. Inconvenient and expensive breakdowns are more likely as well. Changing your filter protects your HVAC system from dust, dirt, and debris that could damage delicate mechanical components.

Many thermostats will remind you when it’s time to change your air filter. Some models can even monitor the air pressure around your filter and let you know exactly when you should change it. You should also have your heating and air conditioning system inspected by a professional at least once per year to catch problems before you need expensive repairs.

Better Efficiency

With a clean air filter, your system won’t consume as much energy to heat and cool your home. Change your air filter and maintain your ductwork to prevent uncomfortable warm and cold areas in your home. Doing so will help to maximize airflow and energy savings.

Higher Indoor Air Quality

Your HVAC system’s air filter protects your home from contaminants like mold and pollen. Changing your filter regularly can improve allergies, asthma, and other health problems. Dirty filters that are exposed to condensation become damp, leading to mold that can spread through your entire home. Clean up can be costly but will be necessary to protect the health of your household. If you have a humidifier, dehumidifier, or air purifier, don’t forget to change the filters in those devices as well. Check your filter more often if you have a large family, pets, or a family member with respiratory problems.
