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 not only means remembering your regular maintenance check, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system working effectively and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to focus on enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Swapping out your air filter is a painless thing to do and there are several advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts throughout your residence by confining pollutants. If you have a family member experiencing allergies or asthma, a new air filter can do miracles for their health. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a year-long challenge. A new, clean air filter will allow you to enjoy the air.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the biggest 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 cause your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has a prolonged, useful life.
