3 Benefits of Changing Your HVAC Filter

The warm weather comes to Michigan a little later than the rest of the country, but that’s okay, we’re used to it! Cooling season tends to start at the end of May around Memorial Day and we want to get you ready for the big day. The first step in turning on your air conditioner for the season is changing the filter and here’s why it’s so critical»

HVAC Maintenance- HVAC Filters

Indoor Air Quality
The Spring is already a tough time for your respiratory system and you don’t need to add icing to the cake by ignoring your HVAC filters. A dirty filter is eventually going to become overloaded and that dust and debris it is supposed to catch are going to make their way into your living room. Changing your filters is a great start to improving air quality, but it isn’t the end all be all. An entire air conditioning tune-up from Levine & Sons is the best way to make sure you stay fresh & clean all season long.

HVAC Efficiency
Efficiency is the name of the game when it comes to utilities and having an inefficient unit is simply a waste of money. Think of changing the filter as clearing your nasal passage when it is stuffy. It becomes hard to breathe when you have a stuffy nose and it becomes hard for the air conditioner to produce cold air when it gets stuffed up. Don’t make your unit work harder than it has to or you’re literally going to pay for it in a big way!

HVAC Lifespan
Routinely changing your HVAC filters is going to prolong the lifespan of your unit– maybe even by a few years. Your air conditioner is powered by a motor that most likely runs on electricity. When that filter is dirty, it forces the motor to run faster in order to force the air through that dirty filter. If the filter is clean, the motor has to do far less work to produce air. The less hard it has to work, the longer it is going to live!
