One of the best ways to perform HVAC maintenance is to change the air filters on your heating and cooling equipment. This is also one of the easiest ways to avoid repair bills.
The average U.S. home has 40 pounds of dust for every 1,500 square feet. Your air filter cannot clean your indoor air if it is clogged. Clogged air filters mean air can’t pass through as easily as the system was designed for. When your air filters are clogged, your HVAC system is using more energy -- and costing you more money.
How often do your air filters need to be replaced? This is a very difficult question to answer. Every HVAC system is different and every home is different. Ask your professional HVAC technician for his recommendation on how often your filter should be changed in your home. At minimum, you should check (and change if necessary) your air filter at the start of a new season.
