Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preventative maintenance is important in making sure your system is working smoothly. This goes beyond receiving your annual maintenance service, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system running effectively and refining your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be devoting more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to concentrate on enhancing the quality of air in the home. Changing 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 flows throughout your house by trapping pollutants. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do wonders to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a consistant battle. A new, clean air filter will let you enjoy the air.

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 filthy your system has to operate harder to do its job, which will show on your energy costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to guarantee that your system has a prolonged, efficient life.
