Many people wonder how often they should check their air filters. With the rising costs of energy, we all try to conserve energy the best ways we can. Since heating and cooling take up almost 50% of our energy bills, experts note that regularly checking and changing your air filters regularly can provide you with a 5 to 15% energy savings on your bills.
Checking and changing your air filter at the start of each new season is a good best practice. Each season can be cold or hot so preparing your AC unit for the inevitable fluctuation in temperature is important before these changes actually occur. Some people also check and change they air filters once a month just to play it safe. So how will you know that the air filter should need replacing?
Keeping in mind all the above factors, changing and checking your air filter at least once a month will be helpful to you and your family. Regular cleaning is also required to help your AC unit function normally and provide you with cool refreshing air.
