Why Changing Your Air Filter Is Important

Published by Webmaster


Why Changing Your Air Filter Is Important

At Elite HVACS, we want to ensure that you are getting the most out of your HVAC system. By changing your air filter regularly, you can extend the lifespan of your system while also keeping your loved ones healthy. We service the areas of Morton Grove, Highland Park, Chicago, and other surrounding neighborhoods.

Energy Cost

If you do not replace your air filter once a month, it will begin to clog with dust and other particles. Since it is clogged, it has to work harder and uses more energy. And when it requires more energy to make your heating and AC work, it causes your energy bill to dramatically increase.

Air Quality

Continually breathing in air that passes through a dirty filter will negatively affect your health and well-being. Your air quality is particularly important if anyone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma, as a dirty air filter will make their symptoms worse.

Extending the Life of Your HVAC

The most comment reason that an HVAC system breaks down is because of a dirty air filter. As more dirt accumulates, the air has a harder time passing through and could cause the entire system to overheat. If you have an older unit in your home and do not replace the filter, it will cause the system to break prematurely and leave you without heat and AC.

Changing your air filter is an easy and cost-efficient way to extend the life of your HVAC. Contact Elite HVACS, your HVAC provider in Morton Grove, for more information.

We contacted Elite HVACS on one of the hottest days of summer(we had no central air for 2weeks) and they sent some1 out same day to assess situation & decided to go with them for the work. I am happy to say that not only did we get the central air going but also replaced the heating unit which was old. Everyone we talked to from beginning to end were very professional, courteous and the work was very efficiently done. I would highly recommend this company.

I have had Juan and others from the team over a few times now. They always arrive within the time window provided and provide solid work. Price has always been fair for anything they've performed maintenance on and was always discussed upfront before being work begins. I would recommend them to anyone in the area.
