You Can Save In Utility Cost, Just By Regular Filter Changes

Air filters get dirty, it’s the nature of the beast.  After a while dust and debris begin to build up on the filter and can restrict the air flowing through your unit. This causes the HVAC unit to work harder to maintain a sufficient air flow.  A unit working harder than it should is using more electricity; which over time can dramatically increase your utility costs. In addition, dirt acts as an insulator disrupting the temperature transfer of the air flowing through the unit.

Change Filters On A Regular Schedule

There is an optimum time to change any air filter; which is when it has reached its maximum efficiency without becoming restrictive. Depending on your home and environment most opt to change every 90 days; but some find that changing sooner works best for their system (every 60 or 30 days)  By changing your filters on a regular schedule, you can save money on your utility costs while keep the air inside your home cleaner!

Save Money on Energy Bills and Help Prevent Costly HVAC Repairs

Breaking It Down

According to the Department of Energy, replacing a dirty filter with a clean one can reduce energy consumption by as much as 15%. Combine that with the knowledge that your HVAC is responsible for approximately half your energy bill and you’re looking at savings of 7.5% every month.

For example: Let’s say your average electric bill is $100 per month.  You could save approximately $7.50 by changing your filter regularly.  Over three months, that’s $22.50.  If you are already changing your furnace filter on regularly, congrats to you!  Your HVAC system is working more efficient because of it and your saving money!

Not regularly changing your air filters can also lead to costly mechanical breakdowns. Keeping your air filters clean is truly the most cost-effective way to maintain your expensive HVAC equipment, and a cleaner environment for your family, friends, and co-workers.
