Spring Cleaning: Air Filters


When’s the last time you checked your air filter? Now, when’s the last time you changed your air filter? It’s probably been too long... so we’re here to help and encourage you to take the five minutes needed to do it. 

Maybe you need these words of encouragement first, so let’s talk about the health benefits! Maintaining indoor air quality is pivotal to keeping allergies at bay and your space clean. Your air filter serves to protect your space from: dust, pollen, dirt, pet dander, and bacteria. Inspecting your air filter every month is a good practice to get into—making it easier to keep track of when to switch out. If you have pets in your home, it’s a good idea to change it out more often since pet fur and dander will be more prevalent in your space. It’s recommended that you change your air filter every one to three months depending on the type of air filter you have.









    

If the health concerns above don’t alarm you, then the monetary aspect sure will. A clogged air filter can cause a tremendous amount of damage to your homes HVAC system which gets expensive when you figure in repair and replacement costs. Think of it like your car needing an oil change—it helps aid in the longevity of your vehicle if you stay up-to-date on those. 

Along with damage expenses comes the costs to run a system with a clogged air filter... that’s also expensive for your electricity bill. Studies show that homeowners who change their air filters regularly save up to 15% on their utility costs. 

Switching out your air filter is a crucial aspect in taking care of your home and saving yourself time + money. Add it to your Spring cleaning list and reap the benefits of the fresh air!
