Preemptive maintenance is important in ensuring your system is running smoothly. This is more than receiving your regular maintenance tune-up, but also examining your air filter. Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system working well and refining your home’s indoor air quality. As we’ll all be spending more time indoors this season, there’s no better time to aim on improving your home’s indoor air quality. Changing out your air filter is an easy thing to do and there are many benefits such as:

Enhanced Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves through your residence by trapping dirt and debris. If you have a family member enduring allergies or asthma, an efficient air filter can do miracles for their health. And if you have a pet, you understand pet dander is a consistant battle. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe easy.

Expand the Life and Efficiency of Your System
A dirty air filter is one of the biggest sources for system interruptions. When your air filter is unclean your system has to run 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 help to certify that your system has an extended, useful life.
