Why you should replace your air filter this winter

We emphasize routine maintenance on your heating and cooling system frequently, but this doesn’t just mean ongoing tune-ups – it also means looking at your air filters. It’s a quick way to help keep your system working smoothly and enhance your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it by yourself! This is the best time to examine your filter, as winter comes to a conclusion and summer is nearing. There are many benefits to getting a replacement air filter, such as:

Lengthening the life and efficiency of your system
A surefire way to cause a system breakdown is a dirty air filter. Extra dirt that is built up on your filter can cause your whole system to operate harder than it should to keep the air in your home cool. Not only will it hamper the performance of your system, but it can escalate your energy costs and end with an overheated system.

Improving indoor air quality
The reason for an air filter is that it grabs contaminants through your air system before it reaches your house. After the filter has been in for a while, the less capable it is in trapping things like dust and mold that can hurt the health and comfort of your home, particularly if someone in your house suffers from allergies or asthma. With increased temperatures near, pollen and mold are especially expected to be hanging around and you don’t want them moving in your indoor space. A quality, clean air filter will help your family breathe easy and stay healthy during allergy season.

Examine your system or chat with your local HVAC expert for suggestions on how regularly you should be swapping out your filter. For many filters through All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, we advise an annual change with the highest MERV filter that is offered.
