Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preventative maintenance is important in ensuring your system is running smoothly. This is more than receiving your annual maintenance service, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system working well and refining your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be devoting more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to aim on refining the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is an easy task and there are several benefits such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts around your residence by catching dirt and debris. If you have a family member experiencing 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 realize pet dander is a consistant battle. An efficient, clean air filter will allow you to breathe easy.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the primary causes of system interruptions. When your air filter is dirty your system has to operate tougher to achieve results, which will be evident on your utility costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to certify that your system has a long, useful life.
