Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Anticipatory maintenance is important in making sure your system is operating well. This goes beyond getting your annual maintenance check, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system working well and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to aim on refining the quality of air that is circulating within your house. Exchanging out your air filter is a simple thing to do and there are many advantages to it such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows through your home by trapping contaminants. If you have a family member experiencing allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do great things for their health. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a consistant concern. An efficient, clean air filter will help you breathe in better air.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the leading sources for system failures. When your air filter is dirty your system has to run harder to achieve results, which will show on your energy costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will aid in making sure that your system has an extended, efficient life.
