Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preemptive maintenance is key in making sure your system is running easily. This not only means getting your regular maintenance service, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system running efficiently and refining your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be occupying more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to aim on improving the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is an easy task and there are several advantages to it such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows around your home by confining pollutants. If you have a family member enduring 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 understand pet dander is a consistant concern. A quality, clean air filter will let you 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 filthy your system has to work more to achieve results, which will be evident on your energy costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to ensure that your system has a prolonged, efficient life.

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