Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Air Quality

We encourage preventative maintenance on your HVAC system frequently, but this doesn’t only mean annual tune-ups – it also refers to assessing your air filters. It’s a simple way to help keep your system working smoothly and enhance your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it by yourself! Now is the ideal time to check your filter, as winter comes to an end and the warmer weather is nearing. There are several benefits to getting a replacement air filter, such as:

Increasing the life and efficiency of your system
A surefire way to instigate a system breakdown is a dirty air filter. Excess dirt that accumulates on your filter can cause your whole system to operate harder than it should to keep the air in your home cool. Not only will it impact the performance of your system, but it can escalate your utility bills and cause your system to overheat.

Improving indoor air quality
The reason for an air filter is that it snatches contaminants through your air system before it reaches your home. After the filter has been in for a while, the less effective it is in trapping things like dust and mold that can impact the health and comfort of your home, especially if someone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma. With spring around the corner, pollen and mold are especially prone to be hanging around and you don’t want them traveling in your home. A quality, clean air filter will help your family breathe easy and stay healthy during allergy season.

Check your system or current air filter provider for guidance on how often you should be changing your filter. For the majority of the filters through Nisair Air Conditioning, we advise an annual change with the highest MERV filter available. Not sure if it’s the ideal time to change your air filter?
