When it comes to HVAC maintenance, most tasks should be performed by knowledgeable and experienced technicians, like the ones at Fresh Air Concepts. Still, there are certain tasks the average homeowner can perform to help improve energy efficiency and extend the life of their HVAC equipment. One of these tasks is regularly changing the furnace filter. It is an important chore that is often overlooked by homeowners.
When furnace filters become inundated with dirt and dust, which happens as these filters do their job, air flow is diminished, which impacts energy efficiency and causes your HVAC equipment to work even harder to perform its job. Ca-ching! Can you say increased energy bills?
How Often Should I Change My Furnace Filter?
Be honest. How many of you have never changed your furnace filter? According to estimates, four out of five homeowners fail to change their filters regularly, if at all. Yikes! Well, no more! It’s time to fight back against poor the indoor air quality (IAQ) and HVAC inefficiencies.
So, how often should you change your furnace filter? Believe it or not, the average home should have its HVAC air filters replaced every three months. This will not only help make your HVAC system more efficient – saving you money on your heating and cooling bills – but also help improve IAQ by keeping your ducts, and subsequently your home, free from allergens and other contaminants.
