One of the biggest reasons why this component is so important is because of the various ways it helps your home. While yes, it does trap dust, dirt, debris, pet dander, and other contaminants that might make your air feel stuffy and uncomfortable, it also helps ensure that your furnace and air conditioner works without using too much electricity. And, to add a third protective job of this component, it keeps the components inside safe from debris that might make them dirty or broken.

So, changing out the air filter will help save you costs in system efficiency and longevity.
