Top Reasons to Replace Your Furnace Filter Regularly

It’s easy to get into the mindset that your HVAC system will always run at peak performance. However, if you don’t partake in proper maintenance, this won’t be the case for long.

One of the best things you can do from a maintenance perspective is regularly replace your furnace filter. Here are several reasons why this is important:

  • A clean filter makes for a more efficient system. As your filter becomes more and more dirty, it has to work harder to circulate air through your home. Subsequently, it takes a toll on your budget and puts a strain on your system.
  • To improve air quality. Do you really want dust, dander, and other particles circulating through your home? With a clogged furnace filter, there’s a much greater chance of this happening.
  • To prolong your HVAC system. If you don’t change your filter often, you’re putting a lot of strain on your system. This increases the likelihood that it will overheat, thus resulting in serious damage and a costly repair (or replacement).

This leads to an important question: how often should you replace your furnace filter?

Since no two homes and families are the same, you should get into the habit of checking your filter every few months. If you want to play it safe, replace your filter every three months.
