Why you should replace your air filter this winter

We stress preventative maintenance on your heating and air conditioning equipment constantly, but this doesn’t only mean ongoing tune-ups – it also means looking at your air filters. It’s an easy way to help keep your system operating smoothly and increase your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it by yourself! This is the perfect time to check your filter, as the cold season comes to a conclusion and heat is approaching. There are a lot of benefits to getting a replacement air filter, such as:

Increasing the life and efficiency of your system
A guaranteed way to instigate a system failure is a dirty air filter. Extra dirt that gathers on your filter can influence your whole system to work harder than it should to keep the air in your home cool. Not only will it impact the performance of your system, but it can increase your utility bills and result in your system overheating.

Improving indoor air quality
The purpose of an air filter is that it snatches contaminants through your air system before it reaches your residence. As the filter gets older, the less efficient it is in catching things like dust and mold that can hurt the health and comfort of your indoor space, especially if someone in your house suffers from allergies or asthma. With warmer temps coming up, pollen and mold are especially prone to be hanging around and you don’t want them moving in your indoor space. A quality, clean air filter will help your household breathe easy and stay healthy all through the allergy season.

Examine your system or current air filter provider for suggestions on how regularly you should be changing your filter. For many filters through Air Quality Solutions, we suggest an annual change with the highest MERV filter available. Not sure if it’s the ideal time to change your air filter?
