Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preemptive maintenance is key in ensuring your system is operating smoothly. This not only means getting your regular maintenance check, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system running efficiently 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 refining your home’s indoor air quality. Exchanging out your air filter is a painless task and there are lots of paybacks such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your home by confining pollutants. If a member of your household is enduring allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do wonders for their health. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a year-long concern. A quality, clean air filter will let you breathe in better air.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the leading reasons for system interruptions. When your air filter is filthy your system has to work tougher to achieve results, which will be evident on your energy costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to guarantee that your system has an extended, useful life.
