Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Preventative maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is operating well. This is more than remembering your routine maintenance service, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system working well and improving 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. Exchanging out your air filter is a painless thing to do and there are lots of advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts throughout your house by catching contaminants. 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 breathe easy.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the biggest causes of 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. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has a long, useful life.
