Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Air Quality

Preemptive maintenance is crucial in ensuring your system is working smoothly. This goes beyond getting your regular maintenance tune-up, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system running efficiently and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to focus on enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Exchanging out your air filter is a painless task and there are many advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows through your house by catching pollutants. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, a new 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 consistant concern. A new, clean air filter will help you breathe easy.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the leading sources for system interruptions. When your air filter is unclean your system has to operate more to keep you warm, which will show on your utility costs and it can also force your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has a prolonged, efficient life.

It’s smart to pursue your filter provider’s advice on how often you should be exchanging your filter.
