Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preventative maintenance is key in making sure your system is running well. This is more than remembering your regular maintenance tune-up, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system working effectively and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be spending more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to concentrate on enhancing the quality of air that is circulating within your house. Changing out your air filter is a painless task and there are many benefits such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your home by trapping contaminants. If a member of your household is experiencing allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do great things for their health. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a consistant battle. A quality, clean air filter will allow you to breathe easy.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the leading sources for system breakdowns. When your air filter is dirty your system has to work harder to achieve results, which will appear on your utility bills and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has an extended, useful life.
