Your HVAC system is required to regularly circulate the air throughout your building to ensure that it remains at a comfortable temperature. Pollutants and additional particles can accumulate in the air of your building. The air filter of your system helps to keep the air clean within your building. It is important to ensure that you replace your air filter regularly to ensure that it continues to remain effective.
When your air filter becomes clogged, it forces the HVAC system to work harder to push air through the filter. This extra wear causes the HVAC system to wear down excessively, which increases the likelihood that it will break down and require repairs.
Higher Quality Air
Debris can quickly accumulate in the air of your building. It is important for an air filter to be replaced regularly to prevent these harmful particles from accumulating in your building. This helps to prevent dust, pollen, allergens, dust mites, and other pollutants from circulating through the air.
When your air filter is regularly replaced, your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard to effectively heat or cool your building. This increases the overall efficiency of your HVAC system and lowers your related energy expenses.
When to Replace your Air Filter
It is important to replace your air filter every 1 to 3 months, depending on the type of air filter and the factors present within your building. Air filters should be replaced more frequently in buildings with pets or individuals with allergies. 3 months is usually the longest that you should go between replacing the air filter of your building.
