Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Air Quality

Anticipatory maintenance is crucial in ensuring your system is working smoothly. This is more than remembering your routine maintenance service, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system running efficiently and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be spending more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to concentrate on refining the quality of air in the home. Exchanging out your air filter is a simple thing to do and there are many benefits such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts through your residence by trapping dirt and debris. If a member of your household is experiencing allergies or asthma, a new 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 year-long concern. A new, clean air filter will allow you to breathe easy.

Expand 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 dirty your system has to work more to keep you warm, which will appear on your utility bills and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to ensure that your system has a prolonged, useful life.
