Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Air Quality

We encourage regular maintenance on your heating and air conditioning equipment all the time, but this doesn’t only mean annual tune-ups – it also means checking your air filters. It’s an easy way to help keep your system running smoothly and increase your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it on your own! Now is the perfect time to inspect your filter, as winter comes to an end and summer is on the horizon. There are several benefits to switching out your air filter for a replacement, such as:

Extending the life and efficiency of your system
A surefire way to cause a system failure is a dirty air filter. Excess dirt that is built up on your filter can force 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 end with an overheated system.

Enhancing indoor air quality
The goal of an air filter is that it catches contaminants through your air system before it reaches your home. The older a filter gets, the less effective it is in grabbing things like dust and mold that can hurt the health and comfort of your indoor space, especially if someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma. With warmer temps coming up, pollen and mold are especially likely to be hanging around and you certainly don’t like the idea of it moving in your indoor space. A quality, clean air filter will help your family breathe easy and remain healthy throughout allergy season.

Examine your system or ask your HVAC technician for guidance on how frequently you should be swapping out your filter. For the majority of the filters through All Elements Heating & Air LLC, we suggest an annual change with the highest MERV filter available. Not sure if it’s the ideal time to change your air filter?
