Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preemptive maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is operating smoothly. This not only means receiving your regular maintenance service, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system operating efficiently and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be spending more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to aim on refining the quality of air that is circulating within your house. Changing out your air filter is a simple task and there are several advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts throughout your house by catching contaminants. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do miracles to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you realize 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
A dirty air filter is one of the leading reasons for system breakdowns. When your air filter is filthy your system has to operate harder to keep you warm, which will appear on your utility bills and it can also force your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to certify that your system has an extended, useful life.
