The Importance of Changing Your Air Filter



Learn when it may be a good time to replace your air filters.

Save yourself the money in the long haul and keep the air clean in your home by checking and changing your air filters frequently. It all depends on how much you use your HVAC system during the year and this is how often you will have to change your filter. RCM Heating & Cooling recommends checking your filter monthly and definitely changing it every 3 months. This will guarantee that you are up-keeping the system properly. This will also help ensure no long term filter related damage.

Here are the benefits of changing your air filter:
  • It keeps the allergens out of your home, which helps you live healthier!

  • It prevents costly repairs; failing to change your air filter can put strain on your unit which leads to expensive repairs.

  • It keeps your energy cost low! When the filter is clogged the unit will work harder and more energy is being used.

  • Extends the life of your system and improves indoor air quality!
