Why you should replace your air filter this winter

We stress regular maintenance on your heating and cooling system all the time, but this doesn’t only mean annual tune-ups – it also involves looking at your air filters. It’s a simple way to help keep your system operating smoothly and improve your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it by yourself! Today is the ideal time to inspect your filter, as winter comes to a close and summer is on the horizon. There are many benefits to changing out your air filter, such as:

Extending the life and efficiency of your system
A guaranteed way to instigate a system interruption is a dirty air filter. Excess dirt that accumulates on your filter can influence your whole system to work harder than it should to keep your home cool. Not only will it impact the performance of your system, but it can escalate your utility bills and result in your system overheating.

Improving indoor air quality
The goal of an air filter is that it catches contaminants through your air system before it enters your residence. After the filter has been in for a while, the less effective it is in grabbing things like dust and mold that can hurt the health and comfort of your indoor space, which is even more critical if someone in your house suffers from allergies or asthma. With increased temperatures around the corner, pollen and mold are especially expected to be hanging around and you don’t want them traveling in your home. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe easy and keep healthy all through the allergy season.

Examine your system or chat with your local HVAC expert for recommendations on how regularly you should be swapping out your filter. For many filters through Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC, we recommend an annual change with the highest MERV filter available.
