Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preventative maintenance is crucial in ensuring your system is working smoothly. This goes beyond remembering your annual maintenance service, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system running well and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be occupying more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to concentrate on refining the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is an easy chore and there are lots of benefits such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts throughout your home by catching pollutants. If someone in your home is experiencing allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do great things to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a constant concern. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe in better air.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the leading reasons for system breakdowns. When your air filter is unclean your system has to work more to do its job, which will show on your utility costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will aid in making sure that your system has a long, efficient life.
