Remembering the Importance of Changing Your Furnace Filter
It’s the beginning of 2023, and many people are going big on their resolutions for the year. Some may want to focus on their health and wellness by changing their diet or getting more exercise. Others desire to start saving money by cutting back on unnecessary expenses.
One of the most important resolutions that people should make is to change the furnace filter in their home’s HVAC system consistently. Not only will it improve your health and wellness, but it can also help you save money! Now the question you probably have is…how?
How Changing Your Air Filters Improves Health and Wellness
The filter is the most important component of your HVAC system. It is the only thing protecting your family from the outside world.
A dirty air filter can be a major source of irritation for those with respiratory conditions such as asthma or allergies and anyone who wants to keep their home free from dust. A clean air filter is essential for better indoor air quality (IAQ).
Replacing your filter ensures that your air quality continues to be excellent, eliminating the opportunity for dust, spores, and other particles to be detrimental to you or your loved ones.
For residential homes, it’s recommended to replace the filter with one that has a MERV rating between 6 – 13. The higher the MERV rating, the better your indoor air quality will be. For more information about MERV ratings and how to choose the best one for your home, click below.
How Changing Your Air Filters Saves Money
Once your furnace filter has worn down, it begins to be a haven for dust particles and can no longer operate efficiently to protect your furnace. If you do not replace the filter, in due time the dust and dander will start to bog down the HVAC system.
A dirty HVAC system is a double-edged sword that harms your finances in two ways:
- An inefficient HVAC uses more energy to operate, which in turn drives up costs (not to mention, harms the environment!).
- The HVAC becomes more susceptible to breaking down and requiring repair, which of course means more money out of pocket.
Changing your filters protects your wallet, keeping your HVAC system running smoothly as well as preventing a necessary fix. To learn more ways that you can save money this new year, click below.
