The HVAC air filter is an essential part of your Clarkesville, GA home’s HVAC system. It keeps your home and your HVAC equipment healthy. Here’s why regular filter changes should never be missed:
Prevent Equipment Failure
Clogged air filters are the number one reason for HVAC breakdowns. Filters protect your HVAC from dirt, dust, and grit. Without filtration, those tiny particles can penetrate your equipment. Once inside, they lodge themselves in cracks and crevices. They harm sensitive, high-tech system components and limit energy-efficient performance. Running your HVAC with a dirty filter can, over time, significantly reduce the lifespan of your equipment.
Avoid Budget-Breaking Energy Bills
As particles from a dirty HVAC filter clog up your equipment, the flow of air through the system is diminished. Your HVAC must work extra hard to push treated air through the ducts. The greater the obstruction of airflow, the more your HVAC will struggle, and the higher your energy bills will be.
Guard Against Indoor Air Pollution
Are you unable to see light through the filter or filter material through the dirt? It’s time to change the filter. Dirty filters can’t trap airborne particles that pollute indoor air. Many of those particles cause allergic reactions and flu-like symptoms. Clean filters capture airborne particles and protect you and your family from the harmful effects of circulating toxins. Fresh filters also keep your living space cleaner.
Maintain Indoor Comfort
Clogged filters do more than just cause health problems and create mechanical issues. They can give rise to hot and cold spots, weak airflow, and poor air circulation. Dirty filters can result in frequent cycling and fluctuating indoor temperatures. All of those things reduce comfort levels in your home.
