Why you should replace your air filter this winter

December 13, 2016

Preventative maintenance is key in making sure your system is running easily. This goes beyond remembering your routine maintenance service, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system running efficiently and refining your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be spending more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to aim on refining your home’s indoor air quality. Swapping out your air filter is a painless thing to do and there are several paybacks such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your home by catching dirt and debris. If a member of your household is suffering from allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do great things to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a consistant battle. A quality, clean air filter will let you breathe in better air.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the leading sources for system interruptions. When your air filter is dirty your system has to work more to keep you warm, which will show on your energy costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to guarantee that your system has an extended, effective life.

It’s wise to pursue your filter provider’s suggestion on how often you should be exchanging your filter.
