Your Easy, But Important Task: Change Those Air Filters

Your home’s heating and cooling system is made of a bunch of different components working together. Things like air filters may not seem like they have a large impact on your system’s efficiency, but a dirty filter will make it harder for your furnace or air conditioning to circulate air. When the system has to work harder, it runs less efficiently.

Energy Savers recommends checking your filters at least every month,  especially during heavy use months. If your filter looks clogged or dirty, you should change or clean it; air filters should be changed at least every three months. Your equipment’s documentation will include information on what to use if it should be cleaned, and what types of filters can replace your existing one.

Regularly changing your equipment’s air filters will help your system last longer and save you money. To get the most out of your system, you should have it inspected at least once a year. A qualified heating and cooling technician will be able to inspect and perform maintenance on the more technical components of your system.
