Breathing Clean Air In The Home

Before the summer or winter season, one of the things that you want to do is change the air filter in your heating and cooling system. The filter should be in a location that is easy to get to, and it isn’t difficult to change the filter once you know where it’s located. There are a few benefits of changing the filter at least twice a year.

When you change the air filter in the home, you are ensuring that your family will have healthier air to breathe that is free of allergens. All of the dust and other debris that floats through the air of your home, with the help of your heating and cooling system, gets trapped in he air filter. Changing the filter will get rid of these allergens as the filter traps them so that they are not recirculated back through the house when the heat or air is running.

If the filter isn’t changed on a regular basis, it can affect the efficiency of the system. It will strain to run as it should because the filter is having to work twice as hard because it has dirt and debris built up instead of being clear of these particles. You might also notice a increase in energy usage as the system could run more often. The system won’t be able to circulate the air as it should, which makes it use more energy than it would if there were a new filter. When the filter is clean, it keeps the rest of the system clean. There isn’t any dirt that can get caught in the system, which means there won’t be any dirt for you to breathe. If dirt gets inside the system, it can cause it to fail at an early stage. Some people don’t use a filter, but this isn’t the best idea all of the dirt picked up through the ventilation system will be carried back through and out into the house. If you frequently run your heating and cooling system, then you might want to consider checking the filter once a month or every other month. A 3m filtrete air filter is an option that can be used in most systems.
