We emphasize routine maintenance on your heating and air conditioning equipment all the time, but this doesn’t simply mean annual tune-ups – it also refers to assessing your air filters. It’s a quick way to help keep your system operating smoothly and enhance your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it by yourself! Today is the best time to check your filter, as the cooler weather comes to a conclusion and the warmer weather is on the horizon. There are several benefits to getting a replacement air filter, such as:
Increasing the life and efficiency of your system
A definite way to trigger a system interruption is a dirty air filter. Excess dirt that is built up on your filter can cause your whole system to run harder than it should to keep your home cool. Not only will it impact the performance of your system, but it can impact your utility bills and cause your system to overheat.
Improving indoor air quality
The goal of an air filter is that it catches contaminants through your air system before it flows into your home. 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 home, which is even more critical if someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma. With increased temperatures coming up, pollen and mold are especially expected to be hanging around and you don’t want them moving in your house. A quality, clean air filter will help your family breathe easy and stay healthy all through the allergy season.
Examine your system or current air filter provider for recommendations on how regularly you should be changing your filter. For most filters through Solar Air Inc. , we recommend an annual change with the highest MERV filter you have access to. Not sure if it’s the ideal time to change your air filter?
