December 13, 2016

Preemptive maintenance is key in ensuring your system is running well. This is more than remembering your annual maintenance check, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system working efficiently and refining your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be devoting more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to concentrate on enhancing the quality of air that is circulating within your house. Exchanging out your air filter is an easy chore and there are lots of advantages to it such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows throughout your house by trapping dirt and debris. If you have a family member suffering from allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do wonders to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a constant challenge. An efficient, clean air filter will let you breathe in better air.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the biggest sources for system breakdowns. When your air filter is dirty your system has to work more to keep you warm, which will be evident on your utility costs and it can also force your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will aid in making sure that your system has a prolonged, efficient life.
