Most people think of air filters as a way to simply keep their HVAC system running smoothly, but the benefits go far beyond that. That is why replacing your air filter on a regular basis can have a significant impact on your energy bills, the lifespan of your appliances, and even your health.
So, let’s dive into the surprising benefits that come with this simple and often overlooked maintenance task.
Experience top-tier indoor air
Look, we are sure your air is just fine. But can you imagine what your house would feel like if you had that premium air? The Ferrari of air experiences in your home?
Jokes aside, it is important to maintain top-notch indoor air quality in Ohio’s unique climate. Here are just a few of the reasons you should be checking that air filter at least once a month:
Air quality: Yes, we are not joking, the quality of your indoor air can improve. By regularly changing your air filter, you will experience better indoor air quality.
Changing the filter regularly ensures that any harmful particles are properly trapped, so you can breathe easier at home or in the office.
Say goodbye to the dust bunnies: The job of a good air filter is to — you guessed it — keep your air dust-free. So with regular checks, there’ll be less dust for you to clean!
Come on, isn’t that what everyone wants to hear. If less dusting isn’t a good enough reason, we don’t know what is.
Your air conditioner will last longer: It goes without saying that if all the parts of a machine are working properly, the machine takes a lot longer to break down. So that being said, with an updated filter, your air conditioning will generally function correctly.
But wait there’s more
Did you think those were the only reasons you needed to look into changing that pesky filter? Think again. The list gets even more extensive and important.
We maybe should have started with this, but a good air filter equals a healthier family.
A properly installed air filter can help prevent airborne illnesses and provide allergy relief. That means by doing the simple task of changing your filter, you protect the people closest to you, and what’s more, you get a better-smelling home.
Studies have shown that replacing your air filter regularly can dramatically decrease diabetes risks and lower blood pressure. We know, mind blown! It can also alleviate asthma symptoms, and decrease inflammation within 24 hours—all in all, a good, healthy family environment.
In a workplace, a good air filter can mean harder-working employees, which we all know is a good thing.
Lower Energy Costs
It will also ensure that you don’t end up paying exorbitant costs to have the whole unit replaced. Also, there’ll probably be fewer medical bills to pay from infections caused by the gritty air you’ll breathe.
Extended HVAC Lifespan:
Consistent filter replacement prolongs the life of your HVAC. Think of it this way: even a particle as small as a grain of salt can get through a damaged air filter. Over time, this multiplies, doing unimaginable damage to your air filter.
