Your air filter is imperative for keeping your system running effectively and enhancing your home’s indoor air quality. Because many of us will be spending more time indoors this time of year, there’s no better time to focus on refining the quality of air in the home. Swapping out your air filter is a simple chore and there are lots of benefits such as:

Improved Indoor Air Quality
Air filters clean your air as it moves throughout your home by confining contaminants. If someone in your home is suffering from allergies or asthma, a new air filter can do wonders to minimize the symptoms or negative impact from poor air quality. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a year-long challenge. An efficient, clean air filter will let you enjoy the air.

A dirty air filter is one of the leading sources for system breakdowns.
