Anticipatory maintenance is key in ensuring your system is operating well. This is more than receiving your annual maintenance tune-up, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is vital for keeping your system running efficiently and improving your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be occupying more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to concentrate on refining your home’s indoor air quality. Changing out your air filter is an easy task and there are lots of paybacks such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your residence by confining dirt and debris. If you have a family member enduring 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 realize pet dander is a constant concern. An efficient, clean air filter will allow you to breathe in better air.

Extend the Life and Efficiency of Your System
An unclean air filter is one of the biggest causes of system interruptions. When your air filter is unclean your system has to operate tougher to do its job, which will appear on your utility bills 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 long, useful life.
