A home's rising energy costs can be linked to poor Indoor Air Quality.
A dirty, clogged air filter creates an unexpected strain on your HVAC system. An air filter is designed to capture particulates that flow through your air like dust, allergens, and other debris like pet dander.
Over time, the filter gets clogged as it captures these particulates and it needs to be replaced semi-annually or annually. If the filter is not replaced regularly, that clogged filter makes your HVAC system work harder to heat and cool your home leading to higher energy costs.
Not only do you have more airborne pollutants circulating throughout your home, but you're also paying more in energy costs. After a while, this strain and the buildup of dust and debris can lead to an HVAC system breakdown.
Dry air can also lead to energy inefficiencies inside your home. Dry air makes your home uncomfortable and dries out your nasal cavities making airborne transmission more likely.
Additionally, every four percent increase in humidity lets you decrease your home's thermostat by one degree. For example, if your home's humidity levels are at 26 percent and adjust it to 50 percent, you can subsequently lower your thermostat by 6 degrees.
Energy efficiency can be the first important step to creating Healthy Air inside your home!
