Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preemptive maintenance is key in ensuring your system is operating easily. This goes beyond getting your regular maintenance tune-up, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system operating effectively and refining your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be spending more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to aim on improving the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is an easy task and there are lots of paybacks such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows around your house by trapping dirt and debris. If someone in your home is enduring allergies or asthma, a new air filter can do great things for their health. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a constant concern. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe easy.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the biggest sources for system breakdowns. When your air filter is dirty your system has to run tougher to keep you warm, which will appear on your utility costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has a prolonged, effective life.
