Air filter HVAC maintenance in Carmel

Switch Out Your Furnace Filter and Burn Less Energy

Clogged air filters force your HVAC system to operate harder and expend more energy. Dirty filters lead to a costlier utility bill for you. Not only will a clean filter let your HVAC system work more efficiently, but it can also help prevent premature malfunctions. Anyone who's experienced the heat go out in the middle of a frigid winter night will say it's well worth inspecting and replacing your air filter.

You can buy an air filter at any chain or home and garden retailer. Just ensure you purchase the right kind, as a larger apartment might need a bigger air filter than a one-bedroom. You may also want to ask if the maintenance staff supplies complimentary replacements. Inspect the filter every month, even if it's designed to hold up for 90 days. If you put it up to a light and can't see through it, that's an excellent hint you’re ready for a replacement.
