Why is it important to change filters on a ventilation device?

Back arrow Back

Ventilation devices play a crucial role in maintaining indoor air quality. Like any other equipment, they require regular upkeep to function optimally. One significant aspect of this maintenance is changing the filters. In this post, we’ll explain why changing the filters of your ventilation device is not only beneficial but also essential.

  1. Changing filters improves air quality

The primary purpose of a ventilation device filter is to trap and remove contaminants, including dust, pollen, mold spores, and other airborne particles. As the filter gets clogged with these impurities over time, its efficiency in capturing newer particles diminishes. By not replacing the filter, you allow these contaminants to circulate back into the indoor environment, compromising air quality. A fresh filter ensures that the air you breathe remains clean and healthy.

  1. Filter change Increases efficiency and performance of the device

A clogged filter reduces airflow. When the ventilation device has to work harder to pull air through a saturated filter, it consumes more energy, leading to higher electricity bills. Furthermore, it can reduce the overall life span of the ventilation device. Replacing the filter regularly ensures that the unit runs efficiently, conserves energy, and extends the equipment’s life.

  1. Better protection against allergies and illness

Continuously breathing in contaminated air can cause allergies and respiratory conditions like asthma. It can also make your living or working space a breeding ground for illnesses. Certain molds and bacteria thrive in environments where they are continuously recirculated. By changing the ventilation device filter regularly, you reduce the chance of these harmful pathogens proliferating, thus protecting the health of the inhabitants.


4. Improved heat and humidity recovery. 

Reduced airflow can compromise the efficiency of the heat exchange process. With a clean filter, air moves more freely, ensuring that the maximum amount of heat is transferred and recovered.

Aditionally. Clogged filters can lead to dirt and particles accumulating on the heat and energy exchanger’s surfaces. This accumulation acts as an insulating layer, which means the heat exchanger will have to work harder to transfer the same amount of heat. A clean filter ensures that the heat and energy exchanger remains dirt-free and operates at its optimum efficiency.

In conclusion, changing the filters in your ventilation devices is a small task (In the case of Airobot device) with substantial benefits.
