Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preventative maintenance is key in ensuring your system is working smoothly. This not only means receiving your annual maintenance check, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system running well and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to focus on refining the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is a painless task and there are many advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows through your home by catching dirt and debris. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, a new 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. An efficient, clean air filter will let you breathe easy.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the primary causes of system breakdowns. When your air filter is dirty your system has to work harder to keep you warm, which will show on your utility costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has a long, effective life.
