Air filters can be hard to keep up with. They need to be replaced often, and many people don't believe that they're necessary to replace. But this is not true; in fact, air filters improve the air quality inside your house, and keeping them clean results in longer lasting air systems. This is much cheaper than having to replace them more than needed!
There are many cons relating to dirty air filters. First of all, they may cause dirty ducts. We offer a service for duct cleaning if this happens to be the case. You can read about it in our "Getting your Ducts in a row" blog.
Dirty air filters may also lead to impure air and foul smells in your home (see more at https://www.epa.gov/indoor-air-quality-iaq/air-cleaners-and-air-filters-home). But the huge issue is that these uncleaned filters are at a high risk of damaging the air system in your home, and creating higher priced problems further down the road.
Not only are there bad effects of not replacing your air filter, but there are benefits to changing them and keeping them clean! Regularly changed filters help reduce viruses and other contaminants that may be in the air. And the best part is, they do not disturb your air system, and even help them last for a longer time.
