For most of us, air filters are out of sight, out of mind. This is because most people don’t really understand how the filters work and the important role they play in our home’s comfort. Here are three signs that will tell you it’s time to change your air filter.
1. Your Energy Bill Is High
Your air filter is in charge of catching air pollutants before they enter your home. And for the most part, air filters are really good at this job! However, over time, all of those pollutants and allergens begin to build up in your air filter, restricting the airflow.
When the filters start restricting airflow, it becomes harder and harder for air to enter your home. This means your AC has to use more energy just to keep your home cool. If you notice your energy bill going up for no reason, you may want to try changing your air filter.

2. Your Home Is Extra Dusty
When your AC is clogged, it cannot properly filter out all the pollutants and allergens for your air. This greatly lowers your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ). While some people have a harder time recognizing the signs of poor IAQ, there is one visible sign that’s hard to ignore; dust.
If you’ve noticed that your home has been collecting more dust than normal, it probably means your air filter is clogged and ready to be changed.
3. Your AC Isn’t Cooling Properly
One of the most notable symptoms of a clogged AC is weak airflow from your vents. You may have noticed that your home is not cooling as fast as it used to. While there are many things that could cause this, a dirty air filter may be to blame. Try changing your air filter to help air flow freely throughout your home.
