What Happens If You Don’t Change Your HVAC Filter?

February 28, 2023 | Blog

Being a homeowner comes with a lot of responsibilities, and changing out your air filters regularly is one of them. Did you know that you’re supposed to change your air filter every 2-3 months? If you don’t, you can experience possible air conditioning problems and poor air quality inside your home.

Are you a homeowner, and you need help changing your air filters? Foulks Southern Air is here for you. We want you to have the best Hammond indoor air quality, and we make that happen by helping you with any maintenance or repairs! We’ll also be happy to provide you with knowledge on why it’s important that your home’s indoor air quality is healthy to live and breathe in.

What Is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the health of your air and the current state it’s in. It’s important to be aware of how good or bad your indoor air quality is.

Healthy air quality is highly desirable for homeowners. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether your air is clean or not.

When you schedule an indoor air quality appointment with Foulks Southern Air, we prioritize the health and safety of everyone in your home. During your appointment, our professional technicians will test the condition of your air and let you know if it’s healthy or unhealthy. From there, we will recommend the next steps for improving that air quality.

Why Are Air Conditioning Air Filters Important?

Air filters are essential for the functionality of your air conditioning unit and a clean air filter is essential for your indoor air quality. Air filters can prevent dust particles and allergens from re-entering the air you and everyone in your home breathes.

Not only do clean air filters improve your IAQ, they also protect your air conditioning from damage. If your system doesn’t receive clean air to filter through it, it can clog up with unnecessary particles and cause it to work harder than necessary. Rely on us at Foulks Southern Air to help change your air filters out during regular AC tune-ups.

What Happens If You Don’t Change Your Air Filter?

If you don’t change out your air filter regularly, you could breathe in poor air quality and your system could break down as it fights hard to perform properly.

With long exposure to bad IAQ, your health and the health of your loved ones could be affected in a negative way. Your lungs work hard to filter out what you breathe in and if you’re inhaling dusty air particles you could develop a cold or allergies. You can avoid these health issues by changing out your air filters regularly.

Professional & Very Courteous

The HVAC System stopped when my Generator quit. When restarting the generator, the AC did not restart. Manuel came out, checked the entire system & got it working in 20 minutes. He was brilliant, professional & very courteous. I’ve use this company for over 25 years & have always been completely satisfied with their service.
