With temperatures warming up, many people’s to-do list includes spring cleaning. One of the easiest things you can do to help get your home ready for the upcoming cooling season is check your furnace air filter. Regularly changing your furnace air filter will not only help protect your heating and cooling system, it can also help with your home’s indoor air quality.
Improved Air Quality for Your Family
Dirty air filters in heating and cooling systems can cause several problems for individuals. The quality of air throughout your home is better when filters are replaced regularly. Air filters collect the dust, mold, pollen, pollutants and other harmful particles from the air of your home. Maintaining the air quality in your home is imperative to avoid allergies and respiratory illnesses.
Saving Money on Utility Bills
Dirty or clogged filters prevent air from circulating as easily inside your furnace and air conditioner. This means the furnace or air conditioner must work longer to maintain your homes optimal temperature levels. A heating and cooling system that is constantly operating creates larger monthly utility bills from the use of gas or electricity. In addition, your air conditioner or furnace works harder wearing out vital components that will require replacement parts. Your furnace or air conditioner may have a shorter lifespan due to overuse and damage from dirt.
Upgrading Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality
According to the EPA, indoor air levels of many pollutants may be 2-5 times HIGHER than outdoors. While regularly changing your heating and cooling system’s air filter helps with your home’s indoor air quality, Midwest Comfort can share with you several different options that can greatly improve the quality of the air you and your family breathes in your home.
