Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preemptive maintenance is key in ensuring your system is running easily. This not only means receiving your annual maintenance tune-up, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system running effectively and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to focus on improving your home’s indoor air quality. Changing out your air filter is an easy thing to do and there are many paybacks such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your home by trapping contaminants. If a member of your household is suffering from allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do wonders for their health. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a consistant concern. A new, clean air filter will allow you to 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 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. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to certify that your system has an extended, effective life.
