Extend the Life of Your HVAC System 

You’ve probably seen it before, your air duct is caked with dust and dirt that just sits on the vents. It’s pretty unsightly, and you may think to clean it because it’s unaesthetic,  but it also can be very dangerous. A clogged air filter can cause extensive damage to your entire system. So by replacing these filters, not only are you eliminating polluted indoor air but you are also saving your indoor HVAC system. Repairs or replacements of your indoor HVAC system can cause thousands of dollars, while replacement filters are relatively inexpensive (starting around $15). Dirt build-up and neglect are some of the main causes of failed heating and cooling systems. This is almost completely avoidable if you pay attention and change your filter frequently, so what are you waiting for?


Give Yourself Cleaner Air

This one may seem pretty obvious, but changing the air filter in your system gives you cleaner, fresher, and healthier air. While everyone can benefit from this, children and elderly people can be especially sensitive to polluted air. Asthma, allergies, and other breathing problems can occur and be heightened if the air around you is heavily polluted. When your air filter is dirty, you’re constantly circulating dust, dust mites, pollen, dirt, and other particles in the air. You may think that the air in your home is cleaner, but if you’re not replacing your air filters, you may be inhaling air that is more polluted than it is outside. We recommend that you change your air filter at least twice a month, but changing it seasonally, or quarterly, throughout the year is another great way to make sure it’s not going too long.


Reduce Your Bills 

Dirty or clogged air filters use more energy than clean, fresh air filters. So, by replacing your air filter and eliminating old dirty filters, you are essentially saving money and may find that your electricity bill has actually decreased. Some people have even saved up to 15% on their electricity bill, and while that may not seem like a lot, every bit counts.


Save the Environment 

Not only are you improving your health, saving money on bills, and extending the life of your HVAC system but you’re also helping the environment. As we mentioned earlier, a dirty air filter causes your electricity bill to increase which also means that there is a lot more carbon monoxide and other greenhouse gasses that are being released by extension. Changing your filter often helps eliminate that, and you end up running your home in a very eco-friendly manner. Changing your air filter can make a large difference in your own life and also the environment.


Reduce Mold 

Dirt, dust, and other forms of grime can block the airflow and therefore provide a space for moisture to gather, which encourages the growth of mold and bacteria. When these form, they can provide an even more solid barrier and will prevent air circulation even further. Depending on what side of the filter they gather, they can even introduce more pollutants and allergens into the air. They may also get into the entire HVAC system which can cause even more damage too. Green Apple Mechanical NJ are the experts you can trust.
