Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preventative maintenance is important in ensuring your system is working easily. This is more than receiving your annual maintenance check, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system running well and improving your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be spending more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to focus on refining the quality of air in the home. Changing out your air filter is a painless thing to do and there are many paybacks such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows around your residence by trapping dirt and debris. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, a new air filter can do miracles to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a constant concern. A quality, clean air filter will allow you to breathe easy.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the leading causes of system failures. When your air filter is unclean your system has to run harder to achieve results, which will appear on your utility costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will aid in making sure that your system has an extended, effective life.
