Here’s Why You Definitely Want to Change Out That Air Filter

Monday, December 2nd, 2019
air-filter

Be honest with yourself. How often do you change the air filter in your HVAC system? Once a year? After every few years? Have you ever changed it since you installed the system? Most of us are guilty of making this mistake. Many people do not even realize how much of a difference it can make if you change the air filter in your HVAC.

You should know that there are several benefits of changing the air filter on time. Not changing it could damage the system, and you might have to call in professionals to perform heater repairs in Holly Springs to sort out the problem.

Benefits of Changing the Air Filter

Changing the air filter in your HVAC system on time can help you get the best out of your system. Here are some of the benefits of changing the air filter.

Improved Efficiency

As you run the AC, its air filters can start to clog up due to the dirt it prevents from entering the system. The longer it runs, the dirtier its air filter gets. The clogged up screen starts to block the airflow into and out of the unit. Simply changing the air filter after every few months can drastically improve your AC performance.

Avoid Problems like Short-Cycling

A clogged air filter is also one of the main reasons why your system might be short-cycling. The dirty air filter limits the airflow, building up heat within the system and preventing the cooling process. The system eventually starts to face problems with overheating and causes it to cycle off. This is an attempt to protect its own condition.

Reduces Strain on System

If the airflow is not optimal, your AC has to work a lot harder to retain the normal airflow. Changing the air filter regularly will allow the AC to work efficiently and reduce the hard work it has to do. With the AC working without too much strain, it can also result in lower energy bills that you have to pay. Running it without changing the filter for too long will not just result in high energy bills. It can cause severe damage to the system, and you will need heater repairs from experts to get it working properly.

Prevent Overheating

If you run the HVAC with a clogged filter for long enough, the air filter can become completely blocked. This can cause the hot air it should circulate to accumulate within the system and heat it up. Besides short-cycling, overheating can cause damage to the internal parts of the system. Regularly changing the air filter can prevent overheating.

The Role of Your Air Filter

Unlike what you might believe, the air filter is there to protect your HVAC system. It does not improve indoor air quality. The best thing you can do to improve the system’s performance is to keep up with its maintenance.
