December 13, 2016

Preemptive maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is operating well. This not only means remembering your annual maintenance tune-up, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system working efficiently and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to concentrate on improving the quality of air that is circulating within your house. Exchanging out your air filter is a simple thing to do and there are lots of benefits such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it flows through your home by trapping pollutants. If a member of your household is suffering from allergies or asthma, a new 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 challenge. A new, clean air filter will help you enjoy the air.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the biggest causes of system breakdowns. When your air filter is unclean your system has to operate more to achieve results, which will show on your energy costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Preventative maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to ensure that your system has an extended, effective life.
