Preemptive maintenance is important in ensuring your system is working well. This not only means receiving your annual maintenance service, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system running efficiently and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be devoting more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to focus on enhancing the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is a simple thing to do and there are lots of benefits such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves throughout your residence by trapping dirt and debris. If you have a family member suffering from allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do great things for their health. And if you have a pet, you understand 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
A dirty air filter is one of the leading causes of system breakdowns. When your air filter is unclean your system has to operate harder 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 help to ensure that your system has an extended, useful life.
