Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preemptive maintenance is crucial in keeping your system is running smoothly. This not only means receiving your regular maintenance check, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system working effectively and refining your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be occupying more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to focus on refining the quality of air that is circulating within your house. Exchanging out your air filter is a painless chore and there are several advantages to it such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts around 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 understand pet dander is a year-long concern. A new, clean air filter will help you breathe in better air.

Extend 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 harder to keep you warm, which will appear on your utility costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has a long, efficient life.
