Written by: Your Filter Connection Air filters are valuable parts of HVAC units, and they are easy to replace. Air filtration units help to clean the air in your home, but they also protect your HVAC system. Replacing these filters is very easy to do, and the filter itself is almost always under $20. This is what your air filter does, and why you should replace it. Coils An air conditioner filter is there to try and block some of the particulate matter that can get into your air conditioning unit. Some of that dust eventually cakes onto your coils and can cause your HVAC unit to work double time in order to supply the cooling you need in the home. Installing a good air filter will prevent some of that dust from ever reaching the vital parts of your unit. Keeping those coils clean also prolongs the life of your air conditioning unit. Air Quality A residential air filter can also help control the air quality in your home by removing particulate matter from the air you breathe. If you have pets in the home, you should consider getting a filter that protects you from pet dander and dust. Air filters can also reduce the amount of problems that develop in people with strong allergies. Final Thoughts An air filter is an important part of any HVAC system that is easy to replace, but often overlooked. Be sure to check your furnace system as well, replacement furnace filters can help heat the home more efficiently and save you money. Proper care will extend the life of the unit, and keep your home running efficiently.
