Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preemptive maintenance is important in making sure your system is working easily. This not only means receiving your regular maintenance tune-up, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system running well and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be spending more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to concentrate on refining your home’s indoor air quality. Swapping out your air filter is an easy chore and there are several paybacks such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows through your home by trapping pollutants. If you have a family member suffering from allergies or asthma, a new air filter can do wonders for their health. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a constant battle. A quality, clean air filter will allow you to breathe easy.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the leading reasons for system breakdowns. When your air filter is unclean your system has to operate more to keep you warm, which will be evident on your energy costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to guarantee that your system has a prolonged, efficient life.
