Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preemptive maintenance is important in ensuring your system is operating well. This is more than receiving your annual maintenance check, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system working well and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be spending more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to focus on refining the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is a painless chore and there are several benefits such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts around your home by catching dirt and debris. If a member of your household is suffering from allergies or asthma, a new air filter can do great things to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a consistant concern. A new, clean air filter will help you enjoy the air.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the primary causes of system failures. When your air filter is dirty your system has to run tougher to do its job, which will show on your utility costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will aid in making sure that your system has an extended, useful life.
