Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preventative maintenance is important in making sure your system is working easily. This not only means receiving your annual maintenance service, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system running effectively 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 enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Exchanging out your air filter is a simple task and there are lots of advantages to it such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows throughout your home by catching pollutants. If you have a family member experiencing 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 realize pet dander is a consistant challenge. A new, clean air filter will let you breathe easy.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the leading sources for system breakdowns. When your air filter is filthy your system has to operate harder to achieve results, which will show on your energy costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to ensure that your system has a prolonged, efficient life.
