Because you care about the health of your family, you should add the changing of the HVAC’s air filters on your regular to-do list for your home. Here are five key reasons why you should change the air filters regularly:
Keep the indoor air allergen-free
The air filter of your HVAC stops allergens, such as dust, dirt, mold, bacteria, pet dander, etc. to circulate into your home. When the filter gets wear out, it loses this anti-allergen power.
Clean air inside the home is essential for your immune system, especially for your kids under 5 years old. The immune system is still developing at that age, thus access to clean air is a priority.
Prevent bad odors and pet dander
Pets are your friends, but keep them from conquering your home when your furry pets begin to shed. New air filters improve indoor air quality during these specific times.
Protect your home from polluted air
If you are living in an urban area, there’s a lot of pollution out there. The air filters clean the indoor air, so consider changing them more often.
Enhance your units’ efficiency
Old filters, all covered in gunk, make the HVAC unit to work twice as hard to produce the temperature is set for. Eventually, the unit will need repairs or will break down.
The area you live in, the number of people living in your home and their health condition, the pets you have are some of the factors that influence the decision on how often you should change the air filters. However, we recommend checking your HVAC system’s air filters every month, and clean or replace them every 1-3 months.
