Boost Your Energy Savings with High Efficiency HVAC Filters

The heating and air-conditioning system in your home probably cost thousands of dollars, but the neglect of an item costing several dollars can cause it to run inefficiently and may lead to having to replace expensive components. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that up to half of the energy costs of running your home come from operating your HVAC system; a dirty or clogged furnace filter can cause those costs to sky rocket.

Energy Savings and Furnace Filters

A simple description of how your HVAC system works is that it pulls air out of your home and heats or cools the air as it passes through the system before being re-distributed throughout your home using duct work and registers. One of the problems an HVAC system has to contend with is that all homes are full of dust particles and as these particles are pulled into the system they can cause it to work harder and may eventually lead to system failure. Furnace filters help prevent those dust particles from entering the system, but if they are not cleaned or replaced on a regular basis, they can be just as detrimental to your system as not having a filter at all.

Furnace filters are normally located in an easy to reach location at the furnace or in return grills. Depending on where you live you should check your filters once a month and replace them every three months as needed to help keep your heating and cooling costs under control. There are several standard sizes for HVAC filters so verify which your system uses and you can purchase disposable filters in multi-unit packages.

How to Increase Your Energy Savings

Furnace filters are available that can not only help your HVAC system run more efficiently, but can also improve the air quality of your home at the same time. There are several types of high efficiency filters used in residential systems and two of the more popular are high efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters and electronic filters. These filters can remove up to 99 percent of unwanted particles from your air before entering the HVAC system including;

  • pet dander
  • bacteria
  • pollen

HEPA filters need to be replaced, but not as often as disposable filters and some electronic filters may never need to be replaced. High efficiency furnace filters can range in cost from as low as $100 to exceeding $800 for some top of the line models, but costs can vary depending on what type of HVAC system you have. You may find that the long term energy savings that high efficiency furnace filters can provide more than covers their initial costs.
