Dirty Air Filter | Duraflow Industries

1. Removing impurities means cleaner air

There is a lot more in the air we breathe than you might think. According to the National Air Filtration Association (NAFA), having a clean air filter will help to better remove a variety of impurities, including dust, pollen, mold and bacterial spores. Filtering these items out of your air will help your HVAC system run efficiently, and ensure that it is not clogged with dirt and lint.

2. Avoid disease and side effects

The body is like an ecosystem, introducing destructive foreign elements into it can really cause some havoc. This may include dust, pollen, and mold, but it may also include pet hair and dander, or other allergens that can make you feel dizzy and fatigued. Removing allergens and impurities from your home’s air can help to reduce irritation in the body. The EPA details that there are long-term and immediate effects to poor air quality, including “irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue” and even “some respiratory diseases, heart disease and cancer”.

4. Save money on energy costs

If your HVAC system isn’t running properly, it may consume more energy. This will result in a higher monthly bill. A clean air filter will help to ensure that your system is running efficiently and use less energy, which translates to savings for you.

5. Get the most out of your HVAC system

In addition to reduce energy costs, having an HVAC system that is properly taken care of and maintained will cost less in the long run. Energy Star details that “A clean filter will also prevent dust and dirt from building up in the system — leading to expensive maintenance and/or early system failure.”

The process of changing your home’s air filter is quick and easy. For many years, air filter designers have made this process as easy as possible: simply pull out the filter, and replace with a clean replacement. With the benefits that you’ll see, both with your health and financially, it’s easy to see why it’s worth it.
