I am a new home owner in my first year. I like to be hands on, and do it myself. Well, for the simpler things that is. This is one of those occasions, and it makes you feel like you are taking care of business! Changing your air filter is super simple, and inexpensive. If you don’t change it – it can cause way more harm, and be very costly.

Why should I change my air filter?

  • A dirty air filter is the #1 reason for HVAC system failure. A dirty filter restricts the air flow into your HVAC systems air handler. This restricted air flow places additional strain on the air handler fan motor and could, over time, burn out the motor and cause your system to overheat and ultimately fail. Filter replacement is a small price to pay to extend to life of one of the biggest financial investments in your home.

  • A dirty air filter makes your fan motor work harder and consume more energy. One of the easiest and quickest ways to reduce your energy bill is to replace your air filter.

  • A dirty air filter reduces the air quality in your home. Poor home air quality can aggravate allergies and asthma, particularly children’s allergies. Change your filter for your family’s health.

  • A dirty air filter makes your heating and air-conditioning systems and your ducts get dirty faster. This can lead to costly cleaning expenses or to a need to replace your units sooner than you expected.

  • A dirty air filter increases your energy bills. You can see an immediate, short-term cost savings when you replace your air filter.

  • A dirty air filter increases your carbon footprint. Changing your filter reduces the amount of energy your home consumes. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to be environmentally responsible.
