HVAC is your home’s respiratory system. It is a series of ducts and vents that ventilate and circulate air throughout your house. It is vital to a well-maintained home and also the health of the people dwelling within.
One of the best ways to keep your HVAC ducts clean and working efficiently is to change your filters regularly. For a well-maintained and healthy HVAC system, you should change your filters often. Advice ranges from every 1-3 months, and more frequently if you have fur-bearing pets living in your home. If there has been recent construction or renovations in your home, consider changing the filter for your HVAC following the completion and clean-up of your home project.
A dirty air filter can slow air flow. It can cause dust and debris build-up in your ducts. This causes your HVAC system to operate less efficiently. A harder working heating or cooling system means that it is expending more energy, which leads to higher electricity costs for the home owner. This wastes energy and creates unnecessarily high energy costs.
A dirty filter causing reduced air flow in your duct work also means that with your system working harder, it is more susceptible to wear and tear. A repair is costly and inconvenient not only for financial reasons but also for time and energy. To avoid HVAC system failure, ensure that your filters and ducts are clear.
You can check your ducts for signs of susceptibility. When looking in your heat/cooling ducts, look for large build-ups of dust or pet hair, mold or signs of rodents.
