Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Anticipatory maintenance is key in making sure your system is operating easily. This not only means getting your annual maintenance tune-up, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system operating well and refining your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be occupying more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to focus on enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Swapping out your air filter is a simple task and there are lots of benefits such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows throughout your house by confining pollutants. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do wonders to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a consistant challenge. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe in better air.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the biggest causes of system breakdowns. When your air filter is filthy your system has to work harder to achieve results, which will appear on your utility costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has an extended, effective life.
