Why you should replace your air filter this winter

We encourage regular maintenance on your HVAC system frequently, but this doesn’t simply mean annual tune-ups – it also refers to checking your air filters. It’s a simple way to help keep your system operating smoothly and increase your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it by yourself! Today is the ideal time to examine your filter, as the cooler weather comes to a conclusion and summer is nearing. There are a lot of benefits to changing out your air filter, such as:

Increasing the life and efficiency of your system
A guaranteed way to instigate a system breakdown is a dirty air filter. Additional dirt that accumulates on your filter can influence your whole system to operate harder than it should to keep your home cool. Not only will it hinder the performance of your system, but it can increase your utility bills and end with an overheated system.

Enhancing indoor air quality
The reason for an air filter is that it grabs contaminants through your air system before it reaches your house. After the filter has been in for a while, the less efficient it is in catching things like dust and mold that can impact the health and comfort of your home, especially if someone in your house suffers from allergies or asthma. With increased temperatures near, pollen and mold are especially prone to be hanging around and you would prefer they aren’t circulating 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 ask your HVAC technician for suggestions on how regularly you should be changing your filter. For the majority of the filters through Air Concepts of Middle Georgia, we recommend an annual change with the highest MERV filter available. Not sure if it’s the best time to change your air filter?
