Anticipatory maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is operating smoothly. This not only means receiving your regular maintenance service, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system working effectively and refining your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be devoting more time indoors this winter, there’s no better time to focus on refining your home’s indoor air quality. Changing out your air filter is a painless thing to do and there are many benefits such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your residence by confining dirt and debris. If someone in your home is experiencing allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do wonders to help assist with managing the symptoms. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a year-long challenge. A new, clean air filter will let you breathe easy.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the leading sources for system failures. When your air filter is filthy your system has to run more to keep you warm, which will show on your utility costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will aid in making sure that your system has a prolonged, useful life.
