The Air Filter Needs To Be Replaced

I’ve consistently been told that it’s essential to replace your air filter every one to three months depending on the season and your living arrangements.

I thought one to three months was a little excessive, so I tended to hold out on replacing my air filter as long as I could.

Unfortunately, the longer I would wait to replace my air filter, the further from my mind it would drift. I would find myself forgetting about my air filter for as much as six months at a time! Basically, the air filter wouldn’t get replaced until the HVAC professional came to maintenance my HVAC system. Every time the HVAC professional realized that I’d neglected my air filter, he’d lecture me about the importance of replacing it every one to three months. After hearing it, I would vow that I’d replace it next time and do a better task. However, I would forget about it again and again and my air filter was particularly neglected. A few weeks ago though, that all stopped because my air filter became so obstructed that it affected my heat pump! The heat pump stopped taking in air and heating it for my house, which was how I observed the complication in the first site… My house was chilly and there was no heat coming through the air vents. As soon as I realized this, my mind right away went to the air filter. I quickly replaced the air filter with a up-to-date one and waited to see if it helped. After an hour, I observed that the airflow returned to normal and it was hot again.
