Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Air Quality

We emphasize regular maintenance on your heating and cooling system frequently, but this doesn’t just mean ongoing tune-ups – it also means assessing your air filters. It’s a quick way to help keep your system working smoothly and improve your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it by yourself! Today is the perfect time to examine your filter, as winter comes to a close and the warmer weather is nearing. There are several benefits to getting a replacement air filter, such as:

Increasing the life and efficiency of your system
A definite way to cause a system breakdown is a dirty air filter. Additional dirt that accumulates on your filter can influence your whole system to run harder than it should to keep your home cool. Not only will it hinder the performance of your system, but it can escalate your utility bills and result in your system overheating.

Increasing indoor air quality
The goal of an air filter is that it catches contaminants through your air system before it flows into your residence. The older a filter gets, the less capable it is in grabbing things like dust and mold that can impact the health and comfort of your indoor space, particularly if someone in your house suffers from allergies or asthma. With spring near, pollen and mold are especially prone to be hanging around and you certainly don’t like the idea of it circulating in your home. A quality, clean air filter will help your family breathe easy and keep healthy during allergy season.

Examine your system or current air filter provider for recommendations on how often you should be swapping out your filter. For most filters through Innovative Mechanical, LLC, we advise an annual change with the highest MERV filter available. Not sure if it’s the right time to replace your air filter?
