Keep Your Myrtle Beach Heating System Efficient Replacing Filters Often

One of the best things a homeowner can do to keep their Myrtle Beach heating system running efficiently is to change the heat pump filters regularly. This can extend the life of the system while providing healthy indoor air at energy saving costs.

Keep your Myrtle Beach heating system running smoothly by always remembering to change the filters every 30 days.

Extend the Life of the Heat Pump

Dirty filters are the most common reason why a Myrtle Beach heating system will break down. As dirt accumulates on the filter, air won’t pass through. This makes the motor work harder. If your system is older, skipping filter replacements could be the one detail that pushes the system over the edge.

Keep Energy Costs Down

When a heat pump is operating properly it saves energy and keeps heating costs down. Proper maintenance is essential to the unit’s efficient operation. Energy consumption of a neglected heat pump with dirty filters can range from 10% to 25% more than with a well maintained one.

Healthy Indoor Air

If anyone in the home suffers from asthma or allergies it is particularly important to maintain healthy indoor air quality. Dirty filters not only make air quality worse, they can exacerbate the symptoms of those who suffer from respiratory problems.

Keeping the HVAC System Clean

Dirt, dust, and pollutants can clog the filter. This will eventually pollute your entire Myrtle Beach heating system. The result is extra repairs, replacement parts, and service calls that the homeowner hadn’t planned for.

How Often Should Filters be Replaced?

Filter change times vary depending on a variety of factors, but a good rule of thumb is to replace your Myrtle Beach heating system filters monthly while the system is being used on a daily basis. If there are pets in the home, this may need to be done even more often.
