We stress preventative maintenance on your HVAC system frequently, but this doesn’t only mean annual tune-ups – it also involves checking 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 on your own! Today is the best time to check your filter, as winter comes to a close and the warmer weather is approaching. There are a lot of benefits to getting a replacement air filter, such as:
Extending the life and efficiency of your system
A guaranteed way to trigger a system interruption is a dirty air filter. Additional dirt that accumulates on your filter can cause your whole system to run 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 increase your energy costs and cause your system to overheat.
Improving indoor air quality
The purpose of an air filter is that it catches contaminants through your air system before it enters 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, 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 would prefer they aren’t moving in your indoor space. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe easy and stay 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 Premium Air Services LLC, we recommend an annual change with the highest MERV filter available. Not sure if it’s the ideal time to change your air filter?
