Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Anticipatory maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is running well. This goes beyond getting your regular maintenance tune-up, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system running well and refining your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to aim on refining the quality of air that is circulating within your house. Changing out your air filter is a painless task and there are several advantages to it such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows throughout your residence by trapping contaminants. If a member of your household is experiencing allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do great things for their health. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a constant battle. A quality, clean air filter will allow you to enjoy the air.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the leading causes of system failures. When your air filter is unclean your system has to work harder to do its job, which will appear on your utility bills and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has a prolonged, effective life.

It’s smart to adhere to your filter provider’s recommendation on how often you should be exchanging your filter.
