Your air filter is critical for keeping your system working well and refining your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be occupying more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to aim on refining the quality of air in the home. Changing out your air filter is a painless task and there are many advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts throughout your house by trapping pollutants. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, a new air filter can do great things for their health. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a year-long concern. A new, clean air filter will help you enjoy the air.

A dirty air filter is one of the leading reasons for system failures. When your air filter is dirty your system has to operate harder to keep you warm, which will show on your utility costs and it can also force your unit to overheat.
