I know that there are a lot of people who don’t remember to change the air filter in their HVAC unit.
I understand that completely. Before I became an HVAC technician, there were a lot of things that I didn’t remember to think about when it came to my HVAC units. I knew that my furnace and my central air conditioner had an air filter in them, but I literally never thought about them. In fact, the only time that I actually changed the air filter in my HVAC unit was when the HVAC technician came over to check the HVAC unit when it broke. I didn’t really see the importance of changing the air filter on your HVAC unit. However, now that I am an HVAC technician working for an HVAC company, I understand why it is so important to change the air filter in your HVAC unit. When your furnace or central air conditioner begins running, it draws the air from around your house. The air in your house has dirt and particles in it, and the air filter prevents the particles from entering into the HVAC unit and causing damage to the parts of the HVAC unit. Machines can get jammed or break easily with dust, and by changing your air filter, you can prevent this. Your air filter also makes sure that the air that is blown around your house is clean, and it can even help you to avoid sickness. You must remember to change your air filter! You will be thankful, and your HVAC technician will be thankful.
