HVAC filters are a vital part of the overall air system, working to pull out dust and other debris from the air so that your Beaumont, Texas home stays comfortable and clean. Changing out your HVAC system regularly not only improves your indoor air quality but can save you money over time. Read on to learn two ways that changing out your filter can save you money.
Higher Energy Bills
As previously stated, your HVAC system's air filter helps keep allergens and dust out of the air by trapping it in the fabric body. Whether you have a super high rate filter or a less-effective fiberglass one, over time dust and debris will build up on the surface. If the filter becomes completely obstructed, your HVAC system may have to work harder to push air through. This results in higher energy bills which can really add up over time.
Regularly changing out your filters can help prevent this dust build up. Filters are very budget-friendly and definitely cost less than an unusually high energy bill.
If your system has to work harder due to the clogged filter, it may lead to premature wearing down of different components. As these components wear, problems will arise, ranging from inconsistent temperatures to a complete breakdown. Changing out your filters costs way less than a complete overhaul of your HVAC system. By replacing the filter, you're helping to extend the life of your HVAC system and lowering or eliminating the extra cost of repairs.
If your system has to work around a dusty filter, that may also lead to more debris building up in the unit which can create bad smells and poorer indoor air quality.
If you've noticed some issues with your HVAC system like dust in the air or bad smells, you may need your ducts cleaned out or a maintenance visit. Give Thermacon Service Company a call at 866-797-1535 to set up an appointment with a professional technician today!
