Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preemptive maintenance is important in ensuring your system is working well. This goes beyond receiving your regular maintenance tune-up, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system working effectively and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be occupying more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to concentrate on improving the quality of air that is flowing within your house. Changing out your air filter is a simple task and there are several paybacks such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows around your house by trapping contaminants. If you have a family member experiencing allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do wonders to help assist with managing the symptoms. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a constant concern. An efficient, clean air filter will allow you to breathe in better air.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the biggest reasons for system failures. When your air filter is dirty your system has to work tougher to keep you warm, which will be evident on your utility bills 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, useful life.
