Change Your Air Filter Lately? PDF Print E-mail

With the change of seasons, now would be a good time to change the air filter in your air conditioner/furnace.  During our long, hot summers, the heating/cooling system takes a lot of abuse.  Soon we'll be ready to turn our heaters on.   The whole system runs a lot more efficiently when the filters are changed regularly.  It is usually recommended that you replace them monthly.   Some systems use a washable metal filter instead of cardboard disposable ones.  You simply take it out, hose it off, then replace it.  Mark it on your calendar to help you remember to perform this necessary bit of maintenance.  You could start next week on November 1st.

What happens when you don't change them?  I see it frequently:  the filter gets clogged with dust and dirt, the system struggles to run, the condensate line clogs and freezes up, the system backs up and overflows, leaving you with no A/C and a big pool of water, usually in the hottest of times.   People who live with pets in the house have their filters get dirtier and clogged quicker than those who don't.

Keeping up with your air filter can make the heating/cooling system run more efficiently, and save you money in operating costs.
