Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preventative maintenance is crucial in keeping your system is operating smoothly. This not only means receiving your regular maintenance check, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system working efficiently and refining your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be occupying more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to concentrate on improving the quality of air that is flowing within your house. Changing out your air filter is a painless chore and there are several benefits such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts around your house by catching contaminants. If you have a family member experiencing 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 understand pet dander is a year-long concern. A new, clean air filter will allow you to breathe in better air.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the primary sources for system failures. When your air filter is filthy your system has to operate tougher to keep you warm, which will appear on your utility costs 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 an extended, useful life.
