We emphasize preventative maintenance on your HVAC system constantly, but this doesn’t only 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 enhance your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it by yourself! This is the perfect time to examine your filter, as the cold season comes to a conclusion and summer 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 surefire way to cause a system breakdown is a dirty air filter. Extra dirt that accumulates on your filter can force your whole system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only will it impact the performance of your system, but it can impact your utility bills and result in your system overheating.
Enhancing indoor air quality
The reason for an air filter is that it grabs contaminants through your air system before it reaches your house. As the filter gets older, the less efficient it is in grabbing things like dust and mold that can hurt the health and comfort of your house, which is even more critical if someone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma. With increased temperatures coming up, pollen and mold are especially prone to be hanging around and you would prefer they aren’t traveling in your home. A quality, clean air filter will help your family breathe easy and remain healthy throughout allergy season.
Inspect your system or current air filter provider for suggestions on how often you should be changing your filter. For most filters through A2Z Air Inc, we recommend an annual change with the highest MERV filter available. Not sure if it’s the ideal time to replace your air filter?
