Regularly Change Your Air Filters
Your air filter guards you from pollutants and allergens inside your home. They trap pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and mold. This won’t be the case if you’re not consistently exchanging your filter in accordance to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Furthermore, a clean air filter means you are preserving your system’s efficiency.
