Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preventative maintenance is important in making sure your system is working smoothly. This is more than getting your annual maintenance check, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system working well and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be occupying more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to focus on enhancing the quality of air that is flowing within your house. Swapping out your air filter is a painless chore and there are many paybacks such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your residence by catching contaminants. If someone in your home is enduring 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 understand pet dander is a year-long challenge. A new, clean air filter will let you breathe in better air.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the leading reasons for system failures. When your air filter is filthy your system has to work harder to do its job, which will show on your utility bills and it can also force 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.
