Depending on the air filter you have, it should be replaced every 30 days or 6 months on the higher end. The longer you wait, the more dirt and dust that gets trapped in the filter. If anyone in your household has allergies or asthma, or if you have pets, it is even more important to replace. According to the Allergy and Asthma Foundation of America (AAFA), “indoor air quality is just as important as outdoor air quality. Outdoor air can contain harmful pollution. But indoor air can actually be worse than outdoor air.”
A clogged air filter can cause more damage down the line if it is not checked and replaced. Your HVAC system could be entirely polluted and end up needing repairs.
It could also malfunction from reduced airflow. This makes the fans and other equipment work overtime and wears them out. More energy is being used and therefore higher electricity bills.
Replacing your air filter is not only inexpensive and easy but it also saves you time and money in the long run.
