Summer is beginning to come to a close and the kids are going back to school. The change of seasons should be an instant reminder to change your air filter, but with all the hustle and bustle, it can be easy to forget. Changing the filter in your air filtration system monthly provides your family with clean, fresh air all year long. Neglecting to replace your air filter can have negative effects on your home’s air quality and your family’s health.
Replacing your air filtration monthly reduces the amount of allergens and bacteria in your home. A clogged filter does a less than optimal job at removing harmful substances that are being projected by your heating and cooling system. While a new air filter purifies the air, an old one can circulate dust, mites, mold, pollen, and dirt throughout your home.
Not only does air filtration keep your family healthy, it also keeps your HVAC system up and running well. Most AC repairs are needed after a system has built up a dirty residue from lack of air filtration. A new air filter every month is a lot more cost efficient than a complete heating and cooling system overhaul! Plus, a clear air filtration system can also save you money on your monthly energy bill.
Don’t wait until your system breaks down or your family gets sick. Replace your air filter at the beginning of every month to keep your home healthy and comfortable.
