Preemptive maintenance is important in ensuring your system is running well. This is more than receiving your annual maintenance check, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system running effectively and refining your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be occupying more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to concentrate on improving the quality of air in the home. Exchanging out your air filter is a painless chore and there are many paybacks such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts around your house by confining dirt and debris. 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 understand pet dander is a year-long battle. A quality, 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 leading reasons for system interruptions. When your air filter is unclean your system has to run harder to achieve results, which will be evident on your energy costs and it can also trigger your unit to overheat. Premptive maintenance such as air filter replacement will aid in making sure that your system has a prolonged, useful life.
