Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preventative maintenance is key in making sure your system is working well. This goes beyond remembering your annual maintenance check, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system running efficiently and improving 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 focus on improving your home’s indoor air quality. Changing out your air filter is a painless thing to do and there are many benefits such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows throughout your house by trapping dirt and debris. If someone in your home is enduring allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do wonders to help assist with managing the symptoms. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a constant battle. A new, clean air filter will allow you to enjoy the air.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the leading sources for system failures. When your air filter is filthy your system has to work harder to achieve results, which will be evident on your energy costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to certify that your system has a long, useful life.
