Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Anticipatory maintenance is key in making sure your system is running smoothly. This not only means receiving your routine maintenance tune-up, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system running effectively and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be spending more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to aim on enhancing the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is an easy task and there are lots of benefits such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves around your residence by catching dirt and debris. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do wonders to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a consistant concern. An efficient, clean air filter will help you breathe easy.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the leading sources for system failures. When your air filter is dirty your system has to operate harder to do its job, which will show on your utility bills and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to guarantee that your system has a prolonged, useful life.
