Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preventative maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is running well. This goes beyond getting your regular maintenance check, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system working effectively and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to focus on improving the quality of air that is circulating within your house. Swapping out your air filter is a painless thing to do and there are several paybacks such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts throughout your home by trapping dirt and debris. If a member of your household is suffering from allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do great things for their health. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a constant battle. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe easy.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the biggest causes of system failures. When your air filter is unclean your system has to work more to keep you warm, which will show on your utility bills and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to ensure that your system has a prolonged, effective life.
