It extends the life of your AC unit. Don’t get caught on the hottest day of the year with a malfunctioning air conditioner, all because you failed to change your air filter. Your filter traps dirt and dust, keeping it from gumming up the works. Checking and replacing your filters can help your AC live a long and happy life, saving you a ton of cash on costly repairs down the light.

It keeps energy costs low. It goes without saying that when something is working at its maximum potential, it also has an easier time doing it. Well, your air conditioner is no different. Without all that dirt and debris clogging up your air ducts, your unit won’t have to work as hard to pump cool air throughout your home. It’s simple — is it easier to blow through a screen, or a wall? The answer is obvious!

It improves indoor air quality. Finally, and arguably the most important reason to remember to change your air filters — indoor air quality. When a filter is clean and functioning properly it means it’s successfully capturing dust, dirt and other allergens from the air before it’s circulated through your home. This means fresher, healthier air for all.
