Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Air Quality

Premptive maintenance is key in keeping your system working easily. This not only means getting your annual maintenance service, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system running well and refining your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be spending more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to aim on improving your home’s indoor air quality. Exchanging out your air filter is an easy thing to do and there are many paybacks such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows through your house by trapping contaminants. If someone in your home is 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 consistant battle. A quality, clean air filter will allow you to breathe easy.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System 
An unclean air filter is one of the biggest reasons for system breakdowns. When your air filter is unclean your system has to work tougher to do its job, which will show on your utility bills and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to ensure that your system has a prolonged, efficient life.
