A dirty AC filter may seem like no big deal, but it can affect the air quality throughout your entire house. All of that cool, comforting air that’s being distributed through the house has to go through the filter first, so if the filter is clogged with dirt and debris, some of it is going to get through. Luckily, finding a high quality HVAC team will allow you to forget all about it and have a clean filter in place all year round.

How Often Should It Be Changed?
One issue that many homeowners have about AC filters is what kind of schedule you should follow to make sure there is always a clean filter in place. A good guide to follow is once every three months or so, but if yours happens to get clogged and dirty sooner than that, then you should modify the schedule. If you have pets in your house or regular smokers, the filter will get dirty sooner and affect the quality of your indoor air.
Clean Filters Save Money
When your AC filter is clean and free from debris, your entire AC system will run more efficiently, saving you money on your energy bills. A dirty AC filter causes your system to work harder, which means you’ll be using more energy than necessary to keep your home cool. When you give your system a break this way, the parts will last longer and you won’t need to replace your AC system as soon.
