Dust dollars off your energy bill by regularly changing air filters

The most expensive dirt in the world may lurk in your home’s heating and cooling system. If neglected, dust collecting the equipment’s air filter could increase your energy bills hundreds of dollars every year and result in costly repair or replacement costs.

Dirty filters cause a system to work harder and break down faster. That’s because unfiltered dust and grime work into critical parts, creating friction that causes unnecessary wear and, eventually, failure.

As you move around your home you drive dust into the air from carpets, drapes, and furniture. Pets generate dust particles by shedding, grooming, and tracking in dirt from outside.

Regardless of where it comes from, dust trapped in a heating and cooling system air filter leads to several problems, including:

  • Reduced air flow in the home and up to 15 percent higher operating costs.
  • Costly duct cleaning or replacement.
  • Lowered system efficiency.

Every time a system with a dirty filter kicks on, having to replace your system draws closer. To avoid this expense, change filters monthly when a system is in regular use. Discuss cleaning the unit and ductwork with your heating and cooling service professional.
