Benefits of Changing Your Air Filter Regularly

When you run your air conditioner in order to cool your home, you probably want to do so in the most efficient manner possible. Well, this will simply not be the case if you fail to change your air filter as required by the system and circumstances within your home. If your air filter is clogged up with pollutants, after all, your system will have to work harder and harder in order to force air through it. This additional work means that your air conditioner will work harder than it should have to in order to cool your home, driving efficiency levels down.

Not only will failure to change your air filter regularly drag down efficiency, but it can also lead to excessive wear and tear on your system, which can in turn lead to operational problems. When your system must struggle to force air through its filter, it is at increased risk of damage. Plus, reduced airflow can lead to icing of the coils, further complicating matters. Also, if the filter is too clogged, air may get around the filter, and pollutants with it, resulting in reduced indoor air quality. Make the smart choice, and change your air filter as needed.
