Do you really need to change your AC air filter? The answer to this question is, no surprise, yes! While almost everyone knows that they need to change the air filters in their AC units, many people do not do it regularly. It is such an easy task but is often forgotten. As summer approaches, you don’t want to risk your AC not working properly, so now is the time to change out your filters and schedule spring maintenance with your friends at Allied Services, Inc.  If you’re having trouble remembering, here are a few reasons regular filter changes are important.

Prevent Damage to Your System

Dirt and neglect are the leading causes of heating and cooling system failure, yet they are completely avoidable. Regularly changing your air filters prevents clogging that can cause extensive damage to your system and will cost thousands in repairs and replacement units.

Breathe Cleaner AirChange Air Filters

Clean filters in your system will improve the air quality in your home, making it fresh and healthy instead of circulating dust, pollen, and other particles. It is particularly important for children and the elderly to breathe clean air as well as people with asthma or allergies.

Save Money and the Planet

Simply put, a dirty air filter uses much more energy than a new, clean air filter which equals a higher electric bill. Keeping your air filter in good, clean condition can save you up to 15% on your electric bill. Using less energy also reduces the amount of carbon monoxide and other greenhouse gasses from being released into the environment thus making your home more eco-friendly. Now that you know how important changing your air filters is, set a reminder on your phone to pop up quarterly. Completing this simple task each quarter will help your health, wallet, and the environment, so don’t put it off any longer!
