How long has it been since you changed the filters on your home’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system? If it’s been more than three months, it’s time. On this Do One Thing Thursday with Energy Star, we’re remembering to change HVAC filters every one to three months.
The Energy Star program reminds us that a dirty air filter will make our HVAC systems run harder, costing us more in winter heating bills. Too much buildup on a filter could potentially create more maintenance headaches and repair bills in the future.
