December 13, 2016

Anticipatory maintenance is key in making sure your system is operating smoothly. This goes beyond remembering your annual maintenance service, but also inspecting your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system running effectively and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be devoting more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to focus on improving the quality of air in the home. Changing out your air filter is an easy task and there are many paybacks such as:

Increased Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it drifts throughout your residence by trapping dirt and debris. If a member of your household is suffering from allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do miracles to help assist with managing the symptoms. And if you have a pet, you realize pet dander is a consistant concern. 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 biggest reasons for system breakdowns. When your air filter is unclean your system has to operate harder to do its job, which will be evident on your energy costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has an extended, useful life.
