There’s a common belief that buying and installing a residential heating and air conditioning system will be enough to solve a household’s temperature issues for many years to come. However, like most things in life, if you don’t give it proper maintenance, it will probably not last.

Eventually, all air filters start getting clogged and need to get replaced. Doing regular air filter replacements is an investment. But what most people fail to understand is that replacing their complete HVAC system every time it gets ruined by the clogged air filter will turn into a bigger expense than replacing the air filter before it’s too late.

What Is The Purpose Of Your Air Filter? 

The air filter in an HVAC system is where all the magic happens. Sooner or later, all the air goes through it to obtain maximum air quality by working as a barrier separating clean air from natural particulate pollution like dust, fungal spores, fabric fibers, pet fur, pollen, and dangerous loose insulation pieces, among other things.

Consequences of Neglecting Your Air Filter 

If you don’t change the air filter inside your HVAC system regularly, it will become completely saturated and will present a risk to the home and its habitants’ health. People who suffer from asthma and allergies will become ill as the air quality decreases exponentially. 

To top it all, the home will experience radical temperature changes, and, believe us, the lack of cooling is not cool. It can go as far as creating a house fire. Besides being an extremely dangerous possibility, it is even more expensive than replacing an HVAC system and replacing an air filter combined.
