3 Things To Know About Changing Your HVAC System Air Filters

If you are a homeowner, then you should learn about the ins and outs of changing your HVAC system air filters. These are some of the things that you will probably want to know about this simple HVAC maintenance task. 

1. You'll Probably Be Able to Do It on Your Own

For certain HVAC maintenance tasks, it is important to hire an HVAC repair technician. However, this is not usually the case for something like replacing your HVAC system's air filters. This is probably something that you can do yourself, even if you don't have tools and even if you don't have much experience with HVAC maintenance. The process is typically pretty simple, although it can vary from unit to unit. If you need a little bit of help, your HVAC repair technician shouldn't mind showing you how to do it. Then, each month thereafter, you should be able to take care of it yourself.

2. It Shouldn't Cost Very Much

Not only will you probably be able to save on service charges and labor costs by installing your own HVAC air filters, but you should not have to spend a lot of money on the necessary parts, either. There are different HVAC air filters available, and some of them are more expensive than others. For example, some are designed specifically for people who have allergies. Even if you choose the more expensive air filters, you will probably find that they don't cost very much. There are also more affordable, lower-grade HVAC air filters and reusable air filters out there that will help you save even more money. Just make sure that you buy an air filter that is right for your system; your HVAC technician should be able to guide you in choosing air filters that are right for your unit.

3. It's More Beneficial Than You Might Think

Many people slack off on HVAC air filter changes because they don't know how important they are. Be aware that changing your HVAC air filters often helps you improve indoor air quality, make your unit more efficient, help your HVAC unit hold up well over the long term and more. Therefore, it's not something that you should skip or put off.

A lot of homeowners don't know the three things above. However, being properly informed can help you with doing this important maintenance task for your HVAC system. Luckily, the tips above can help, and an HVAC company can provide you with more information about changing your HVAC filters, too.

Remaining Comfortable In Your Home after Completing a Major Renovation

In a few, short months, my spouse and I will begin the construction process to build a much needed addition onto our small home. The addition will include a den and a master suite. But because our home will be much larger after the building process is complete, we will need to update our HVAC system. After speaking with our knowledgeable HVAC contractor, we’ve decided to purchase a second heating and air conditioning unit for our home. This additional unit will be considerably smaller than our current one. It will only heat and cool the new addition to our house. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best options for heating and cooling a home after building an addition onto it.
