4 Reasons You Should Be Changing AC Filters


Here are the four reasons why you should change your AC filter regularly.

Have you checked your AC filter recently? There are several reasons why it’s absolutely critical to change your air filter regularly. The first—and perhaps simplest—reason is that you’ll extend the life of your AC by doing so. No one that I know likes having their HVAC unit go out in the middle of a San Antonio summer; changing the filter on a regular basis can keep that big HVAC replacement bill at bay for many, many years. You can look at the manufacturer’s instructions to see whether filters need to be swapped out every month or every three months.

Furthermore, a surefire way to see your electric bill skyrocket is to let your AC get clogged up, forcing your pump to work harder than it has to when pushing air out. Changing your filter will allow for a more efficient system—and a more manageable bill.

Don’t risk anything; change your filter to enjoy cleaner air.

Here’s arguably the most important reason why you should change your filter: You’ll improve your air quality. Allergens circulating throughout the air make us sneeze and cough, and in the middle of a pandemic, the last thing you want to do is test your immune system. Don’t risk anything; change your filter to enjoy cleaner air.

Ultimately, a fresh filter provides you with peace of mind. The air around you will just be one less thing you’ll have to worry about. If you have further questions about this or any other home maintenance topic, give us a call or send an email. We’d love to be a resource for you.
