Why Changing Your Air Filters for Your HVAC Unit is Important

The air quality in your home can have a big effect on your health. Poor air quality can lead to headaches, fatigue, sneezing, runny nose, allergic reactions, and tightness in your chest, among other health problems. One of the easiest ways to maintain good air quality in your home is to change the filters on your HVAC unit regularly. If it is a low grade air filter, you should change it at least once a month. For higher grade filters, you can change it every three months. If the people in your household suffer from allergies or you have furry pets, change the filters more often.

Keep Your HVAC Running Smoothly and Efficiently

When you have clogged or dirty filters, the necessary air flow in your HVAC system is reduced, which can lead to decreased efficiency, malfunction, and failure. Your system has to work harder to do its job, so you see increased energy bills as well. Dirt gets on the cooling coils which allow frost to build up on them and the fans, which makes it a lot harder to keep your house at the right temperature.

Make It Part Of Your Routine

Like any good habit, it's hard to make it happen if you haven't set up the proper routine to make it happen. Changing the HVAC filters only takes about five minutes to do. However, you need to make sure you have a good supply of filters on hand or else you might forget to do it regularly. Now is a new year, why not buy all the filters you need for the year, so you can have them in stock when it is time to change them? Also, be sure to write down when to change the filters on a calendar or a digital planner, so you don't even have to think about it. When you are down to one filter, then you will know it is time to buy filters for the next year.
