Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preemptive maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is working well. This goes beyond remembering your regular maintenance tune-up, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system working efficiently and refining your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be occupying more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to focus on refining your home’s indoor air quality. Swapping out your air filter is a painless chore and there are many advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves throughout your residence by trapping pollutants. If you have a family member enduring allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do miracles to help assist with managing the symptoms. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a consistant battle. An efficient, clean air filter will help you enjoy the air.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the leading reasons for system breakdowns. When your air filter is dirty your system has to run harder to keep you warm, which will be evident on your utility costs 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 a prolonged, useful life.
