Anticipatory maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is working smoothly. This is more than getting your routine maintenance check, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system operating efficiently and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be spending more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to aim on enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Exchanging out your air filter is a simple task and there are many paybacks such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves around your house by trapping contaminants. If someone in your home is experiencing 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. An efficient, clean air filter will let you breathe easy.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A filthy air filter is one of the leading reasons for system interruptions. When your air filter is unclean your system has to work more to keep you warm, which will appear on your utility bills and it can also force your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will help to guarantee that your system has a long, useful life.
