Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Anticipatory maintenance is key in ensuring your system is working easily. This not only means getting your routine maintenance tune-up, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system running well and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be spending more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to concentrate on refining your home’s indoor air quality. Changing out your air filter is an easy chore and there are lots of paybacks such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves around your home by trapping dirt and debris. If you have a family member experiencing allergies or asthma, a new air filter can do great things to help assist with managing the symptoms. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a consistant concern. A quality, clean air filter will allow you to breathe in better air.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the leading reasons for system interruptions. When your air filter is unclean your system has to work more to do its job, which will appear on your utility bills and it can also force your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has an extended, efficient life.

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