Why a Clean Air Filter is Essential to a Healthy HVAC System and Home

Do you want the HVAC system in your Venice, Florida, home to perform at its best? If so, you need to maintain it. Keeping the air filter clean is one of the most important maintenance tasks you can do. Find out how a clean air filter is essential to supporting a healthy HVAC system and home.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

Your HVAC system’s air filter can help you improve your home’s indoor air quality. Each time your HVAC system operates, the air filter goes to work to trap particulates like dust. It prevents them from entering the air. In contrast to a clean air filter, a dirty air filter isn’t able to effectively corral these unwanted particulates. As a result, they may be able to work through the HVAC system and into the air.

Prolong Your HVAC System’s Life Span

A dirty air filter can put unnecessary strain on your HVAC system. As dust and debris build up on the filter, they obstruct airflow through it. When the airflow becomes obstructed, the system must work harder than normal. By regularly changing the air filter, you can reduce the debris buildup, promote airflow through the filter and prolong your HVAC system’s lifespan.

Prevent Unexpected HVAC System Breakdowns

A dirty air filter puts more operating strain on your HVAC system as it attempts to deliver heating or air conditioning throughout your home. When your HVAC system operates in this way, the strain can compromise the system. As a result, your system could experience an unexpected breakdown that requires repairs.

You rely on your HVAC system to control indoor humidity and create healthy air in your home. An HVAC system breakdown compromises your home’s indoor air quality, a concern for members of your household who suffer from asthma and allergies.

In addition to regular air filter changes, scheduling routine maintenance is also important for your home HVAC system’s health. Call Custom Air & Plumbing to schedule an HVAC system maintenance appointment.
