Preventative maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is running easily. This is more than remembering your routine maintenance service, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is critical 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 focus on refining the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is a painless task and there are lots of benefits such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts through your residence by trapping dirt and debris. If a member of your household is experiencing allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do great things for their health. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a consistant battle. An efficient, clean air filter will allow you to breathe easy.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the primary causes of system breakdowns. When your air filter is dirty your system has to operate harder to do its job, which will appear 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 long, useful life.
