Here’s a breakdown of the trouble a dirty air filter can cause:
1. Dirty air. If your filter is dirty your whole home is getting dirty air blown back into it. Changing your dirty air filter ensures cleaner, fresher, healthier air.
2. Reduced airflow. If the internal airflow amount isn’t being met then the air conditioning unit may malfunction.
3. Increased energy bills. Since your air conditioning unit has to work much harder to cool your Texas home, it uses more energy, causing higher energy bills. By keeping your air filter clean and in good condition you can save up to 15% on utility costs.
