Changing Your Air Filter

Changing Your Air Filter Regularly Will Save You Money

September 18, 2018

Keeping the air filters clean in your Opelika, Alabama, home can help to extend the life of your HVAC system, keep your home’s temperature comfortable, and help to ensure that your indoor air is clean. Let’s explore a few reasons why changing your air filter regularly can help you save money.

Fewer Trips to the Doctor

Air filters are in place to capture dirty air before it goes into your home. They collect dirt, dust, pollutants, and pet dander before they end up on your kitchen counters, bedding, and children’s toys. If the outdoor air is exceptionally dirty, the air filters capture most of that dirt before it enters your home.

When dirty air comes inside, it can lower the quality of your indoor air. Poor indoor air quality can trigger a host of health risks, including asthma attacks, allergic reactions, and respiratory issues that may require visits to the doctor’s office. Cleaning your air filters regularly can help you save money with fewer visits to the doctor.

Fewer Repairs to the HVAC System

Your HVAC system is made up of several complex components, and each of these components needs to work together seamlessly to supply sufficiently cool or warm air to your home. If the air filters are not maintained on a regular basis, the system has to work harder to push air through. Dirty air filters make the system work harder which could lead to costly repairs.

Extend the Life of Your System

As a homeowner, investing in your HVAC system is investing in your family’s health and comfort. When your system is running smoothly and efficiently, your air conditioner and heater will run for many years. At Sensigreen Heating & Air, we suggest cleaning or changing your air filters every 30-90 days to help keep your system running efficiently.
