Why is it so important to change your air filter on your heating and AC system?

Air Filters Kennesaw GA

The air filter keeps the furnace/air handler, evaporator coil and the duct system clean. It is important that all components of the system stay clean year after year. When the system is clean it operates correctly and more efficiently.  If these components get dirty you will have a break down on the equipment and a costly repair bill.

Importance of Air Filter Changes

For example:

  • If the evaporator coil becomes dirty it can cause it to ice-up. The solution is to clean the evaporator coil at a cost of $330 to $900 depending on the application.
  • If the furnace/Air Handler blower assembly (blower motor and squirrel cage blower wheel) become dirty, you might need to call a service company because you’re a/c won’t be cooling correctly. To clean the blower assembly is very involved and expensive too! You would pay your service provider about $334 to $415 to that chore.
  • If the duct system becomes dirty because you don’t change you air filter, you can cause yourself health problems. The duct can become full of dust, dirt, bacteria, mold spores, mold, and dust mites to name a few things. It can cost between $200 and $600 per duct system to clean them.

To avoid having your a/c or furnace breakdown on the hottest or coldest day of the year, change your air filter on a regular schedule. The filter does not cost much, but the repair/cleaning does.

By changing you air filter on a regular schedule, your heating and a/c equipment becomes more dependable, reliable, and stays more efficient.

This is why it is so important to change your air filter on your heating and a/c system!
