Bustling families, busy careers, and overwhelming responsibilities keep us very occupied every day. Understandably, worrying about the air filter in your HVAC system is probably way down at the bottom of the priority list - if it's on the list at all!
However, our team wants to offer a reminder about the importance of this seemingly trivial maintenance task. It's one that only takes a minute or two but can make a huge difference in your Northeast Ohio home.
Think about it. Your system's filter is responsible for cleaning every bit of your indoor air as it circulates throughout your home, providing a well-conditioned inside environment for you and your family. It's responsible for filtering out dirt and dust and things like allergens and pet dander. It has an essential job to do - one that impacts your family's health, comfort, and finances.
Changing your air filter is essential but inexpensive. When you think about it, it's a small price to pay to safeguard your family's health.
When air filters are dirty, they can't clean your indoor air properly - or at all, if they're completely clogged. Spending most of your life indoors - as nearly all of us do - significantly affects your overall health. Outdoor pollen infiltrates your home, and daily living generates considerable dust and dirt inside your house. Also, if you smoke, have pets, or you have a remodeling project underway, these will dramatically reduce your indoor air quality.
The air filter you choose will minimize or eliminate many of these allergens, and keeping a small supply of filters on hand will help you remember to change them regularly.
If members of your family suffer from asthma or allergies, they'll feel even worse due to a clogged air filter. Even healthy folks may feel the effects of poor air quality. You might consider high-quality air filters such as high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters that filter out the majority of even the smallest particles.
Your HVAC system is designed to deliver heating and cooling to your living space so that your family will be comfortable. A clogged air filter will adversely affect the performance of your HVAC system, forcing it to work harder and less efficiently. Also, your HVAC system helps control the humidity level inside your home. A dirty air filter prevents this from happening. Failing to do this simple maintenance task absolutely will make your home a less comfortable place to be. Who wants that?
It's a fact - a clogged air filter hurts the performance of your HVAC equipment. When your filter is dirty, air has a difficult time moving through your system. That means your air conditioner and furnace need to work harder to push air through. This extra effort will wear out components faster than normal, shortening your system's working life. It will also result in more frequent repairs and considerably higher repair costs.
On top of that, it'll require more energy to deliver heat and cooling to your home, which means your utility bills will be much higher. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), changing your air filters regularly can reduce your energy usage by up to 15% every month.
The solution to all of the above issues is a simple one - remember to change your air filter every month, or according to your manufacturer's recommendations. It only takes a minute, and it'll mean better health, greater comfort, and less impact on your pocketbook.
