December 13, 2016

Preventative maintenance is important in making sure your system is working easily. This goes beyond remembering your routine maintenance tune-up, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system operating efficiently and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be spending more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to aim on enhancing the quality of air in the home. Changing 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 drifts through your residence by catching dirt and debris. If you have a family member experiencing allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do wonders to help assist with managing the symptoms. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a year-long challenge. An efficient, clean air filter will allow you to breathe easy.

Increase the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the biggest sources for system interruptions. When your air filter is unclean your system has to work tougher to keep you warm, which will appear on your utility costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has a long, effective life.
