Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Anticipatory maintenance is key in ensuring your system is running well. This not only means receiving your annual maintenance tune-up, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system running effectively and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be occupying more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to focus on enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Changing out your air filter is a painless thing to do and there are many advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your home by catching dirt and debris. If you have a family member suffering from allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do great things 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 challenge. A quality, clean air filter will let you breathe easy.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the leading reasons for system failures. When your air filter is dirty your system has to run more to achieve results, which will appear on your energy costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will aid in making sure that your system has a long, effective life.
