Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Air Quality

Preventative maintenance is key in keeping your system working smoothly. This not only means remembering your annual maintenance check, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system working effectively and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be devoting more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to concentrate on improving your home’s indoor air quality. Changing out your air filter is an easy thing to do and there are many advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts through your home by confining contaminants. If someone in your home is enduring allergies or asthma, a new air filter can do wonders for their health. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a consistant battle. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe easy.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System 
An unclean air filter is one of the primary causes of system breakdowns. When your air filter is filthy your system has to work more to do its job, which will be evident on your utility bills and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to guarantee that your system has an extended, effective life.
