As winter approaches and temperatures continue to drop, it’s important to make sure your system is running at its best. Having a clean air filter is one thing that you, as a homeowner, can do to help your system run well.
An air filter’s main purpose is to clean the air that circulates throughout your home system. Particles such as dust, pollen, mold, mold spores, fibers, lint, hair, fur, and bacteria are trapped in the filter as the air passes through.
As these particles accumulate, they begin to block the air trying to move throughout the system. The biggest reason for system failure is because of a dirty air filter. Regularly changing your filter allows the air to move easily throughout the system and extend the life of your system. It can help to prevent further maintenance needs because of pollution or clogs that could have easily been prevented. It can even help to reduce the energy cost of your home!
Air quality in your home is another benefit of regularly changing your filter. Having a clean filter can greatly improve air quality for those suffering from asthma or allergies. This is especially important for homes with pets.
