Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Air Quality

We encourage regular 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 simple way to help keep your system running smoothly and improve your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it all yourself! Today is the ideal time to examine your filter, as the cooler weather comes to an end and heat is approaching. There are many benefits to getting a replacement air filter, such as:

Extending the life and efficiency of your system
A definite way to cause a system interruption is a dirty air filter. Additional dirt that gathers on your filter can influence your whole system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only will it hamper the performance of your system, but it can escalate your utility bills and cause your system to overheat.

Increasing indoor air quality
The goal of an air filter is that it grabs contaminants through your air system before it reaches your home. As the filter gets older, the less effective it is in grabbing things like dust and mold that can hurt the health and comfort of your indoor space, particularly if someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma. With increased temperatures around the corner, pollen and mold are especially expected to be hanging around and you don’t want them traveling in your house. A quality, clean air filter will help your family breathe easy and remain healthy during allergy season.

Inspect your system or current air filter provider for guidance on how frequently you should be swapping out your filter. For the majority of the filters through Alltemp Comfort Services LLC, we advise an annual change with the highest MERV filter you have access to.
