Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preemptive maintenance is important in making sure your system is operating easily. This goes beyond remembering your regular maintenance check, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system working well and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to concentrate on refining the quality of air in the home. Exchanging out your air filter is a painless task and there are several paybacks such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts through your house by trapping pollutants. If someone in your home is enduring allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do miracles to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a year-long challenge. A quality, clean air filter will let you breathe in better air.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the leading causes of system breakdowns. When your air filter is filthy your system has to run more to do its job, which will show on your energy costs and it can also force your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has an extended, useful life.
