While the nighttime temperatures in Goshen, Indiana, still feel nippy, spring is in the air. Soon enough, homeowners will start to turn on their air conditioners to secure their comfort. But before doing so, it’s important to schedule HVAC maintenance. Although you should leave most maintenance tasks to a professional, there’s one you can perform on your own: changing your HVAC filter. Here are three reasons to do so this spring:
Help Your Air Conditioner Maximize Efficiency
An HVAC filter’s primary job is to stop as many particles from entering your air conditioner and re-circulating through your home. If your filter becomes too dirty and clogs, it can’t perform that job properly. As a result, your air conditioner will have to strain to push conditioned air through it to cool your home. This can lead to higher energy bills and greater risk for an AC repair. To avoid both, make sure to change your HVAC filter at the start of every season.
Prevent Your AC System From Breaking Down
As previously mentioned, a dirty and clogged filter will strain your air conditioner. As a result of that added stress on many its components, it’ll eventually break down. Changing your HVAC filter at least every 90 days is the easiest way to prevent your AC system from breaking down. That way, you can save by avoiding air conditioning repair costs.
Maintain Healthy Indoor Air Quality in Your Home
While saving money is a priority for most homeowners, protecting your health should be your number-one concern. A clean HVAC filter prevents harmful particles from re-circulating through home and causing respiratory illness. If you suffer from asthma or allergies, change your HVAC fitler every 30 days to help ease symptoms as much as possible.
