December 13, 2016

Anticipatory maintenance is crucial in making sure your system is operating smoothly. This not only means getting your regular maintenance service, but also checking in on your air filter. Your air filter is critical for keeping your system working well and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be spending more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to concentrate on improving the quality of air in the home. Exchanging out your air filter is a painless thing to do and there are many benefits such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your home by confining contaminants. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do great things for their health. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a constant challenge. A new, clean air filter will allow you to breathe in better air.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the primary causes of system failures. When your air filter is filthy your system has to operate harder to achieve results, which will appear on your energy costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will aid in making sure that your system has a long, efficient life.
