Reasons to Change Your Air Filter

A dirty air filter can have negative consequences for your health.

A dirty air filter provides the number one reason for HVAC failure. Dirty or clogged air filters restrict the flow of air into your A/C’s air handler. This places additional strain on the motor that can, given enough time, result in its burn out. Thankfully, air filter replacement provides an easy way to maintain the long-term health of your system.

Prevent A/C Repair

A dirty filter means that your A/C and its ducts get dirtier faster. These two factors not only lead to costly cleaning bills — they can also shorten the life of your entire HVAC system.

Save On Bills

If your air conditioner has to work less, it will consume less energy. A clean air filter results in the easier flow of air, and lower monthly energy bills. This represents an immediate change for the better.

Smaller Footprint

Less energy output from your HVAC lessens the overall size of your carbon footprint. As a way to become more environmentally friendly, you can’t find many easier or cheaper ways.

Your Health

A dirty air filter means dirtier air in your home. This can aggravate allergies or breathing issues, and makes for a less comfortable home environment. If for no other reason, change your filter regularly for your family’s health.

Energy Efficiency

An air conditioner that doesn’t work as hard has an immediate impact on your home’s energy efficiency. Your bills will fall, and you can avoid the need for costly HVAC replacement for a longer period of time.

At Arctic Air, we recommend that you change your air filters at least once a month. If you have pets, you may want to accomplish this even more often. For any questions, or to schedule HVAC maintenance, contact Arctic Air Conditioning today at 817-834-2829.
