Changed Your Air Filter Lately?
Ever try to suck a piece of ice through a straw? It's hard work, huh?
The same goes for your home's heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system. When there is a blockage in the system, extra energy is needed to circulate air.
Heating and cooling is a large part of your energy bill especially during summer and the winter's extreme temperatures.
To keep your unit running efficiently all year long, check your filter every month.
At minimum, change it every three months. Your eye is the best indicator. If the filter looks dirty, change it.
The cost of a new filter is minor compared to the benefit for your unit and the health of your family. For more information on saving energy click here.
