Having us at One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning of Charlotte clean your air ducts to improve your indoor air quality is one thing, but you need to maintain the air by regularly replacing the air filters for your home heating and cooling system. This is perhaps one of the simplest projects you can do that saves you money and makes your home more comfortable.
If you are like many, you may neglect the simple task of changing your air filters. In most cases, people simply forget about it, but old, clogged air filters can cause problems for your indoor air and for your HVAC system. If you air filters go too long before they are changed, your HVAC system has to work harder to pull air through the filter, making the entire unit run less efficiently. The less efficient your heating and cooling system is, the more it costs to operate it.
How often should you replace your air filters depends on several factors. The amount of pollution or particles in the air in your home make a difference, and the amount of time you run the heater or air conditioner will also be a factor. If you live in an old, dusty house or around a lot of trees when they are producing heavy amounts of pollen, your filter may need more frequent changes than someone in a place with naturally cleaner air. If you run your heater or air conditioner almost all year long, you will also need to change the filter for your system more often.
During the summer and winter months when your HVAC system is being heavily used, it is a good idea to check and change the filter every 30 days. Doing so keeps you air cleaner and your system running more efficiently.
