Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preemptive maintenance is important in ensuring your system is operating well. This not only means receiving your regular maintenance check, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is critical 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 improving the quality of air that is traveling within your house. Changing out your air filter is a painless task and there are several paybacks such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your home by catching pollutants. If someone in your home is enduring allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do great things to help assist with managing the symptoms. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a constant battle. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe easy.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the leading causes of system interruptions. When your air filter is filthy your system has to work more to do its job, which will show on your utility bills and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has an extended, efficient life.
