Top 5 Reasons to Replace Your HVAC Air Filter

I don’t know about you, but I really miss David Letterman. Was there anything better/funnier than his nightly top 10 list? It got me thinking about a new way to convince you how important it is to replace the HVAC air filters regularly in your Glenwood Springs, Aspen, or Vail, CO home. So, without further ado, here is Climate Control Company’s top 5 (sorry our writing staff isn’t as big as Letterman’s was) reasons to change those air filters.

Number 5….Your husband takes a shower like clockwork…every other week.

Seriously, changing your air filters regularly as part of HVAC maintenance will keep your house cleaner even if not everyone in the house practices perfect hygiene. The air filter removes things like dust, pollen, pet dander, and smoke.

Number 4…Not feeling as guilty when you see stories on global warming…while throwing away your plastic shopping bags.

Replacing your air filters religiously reduces your carbon footprint by making your heating and cooling systems more efficient. Yes, I know it’s a very tiny step, but every little bit helps. And I know you don’t really use plastic grocery bags.

Number 3…Your wife needs a new pair of shoes…you know to go along with the 50 pairs she has in the closet.

It won’t hurt as much because changing your filters as part of regular HVAC maintenance will save money on monthly utility bills.  You’ll be a hero when you say, “Sure, go ahead honey there’s enough money to pay for those ankle strap heels you want.”

Number 2…Your child will no longer blame you for ruining his or her life when forced to drop out of college…because you had to cash in the college fund for a new furnace, air conditioner, or heat pump.

Here’s the real deal, proper HVAC maintenance, including regular air filter changes, will make your current system last longer. Hopefully, until the kids are all out of college and they can help pay for the new system. You know they’ll want to repay you for everything you did for them.

And the number ONE reason to change your HVAC filters…So you can enjoy life…you know mowing the lawn, doing laundry, washing the car, and cooking meals.

Okay, I know those are all chores that may or may not be enjoyable, but proper HVAC filtration will make your home and your life healthier. Good indoor air quality will help prevent allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems.


No, please that’s not necessary…thank you…you’re too kind. I’ll be here all week. Make sure you tell your friends and neighbors how funny I am. Or, at the very least, tell them about how Climate Control Company is here to make their Glenwood Springs, Aspen, or Vail, CO homes comfortable year-round with HVAC maintenance from highly trained technicians.
