Why you should replace your air filter this winter

Air Quality

We encourage regular maintenance on your HVAC system constantly, but this doesn’t simply mean yearly tune-ups – it also involves checking your air filters. It’s a simple way to help keep your system running smoothly and enhance your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it on your own! Now is the best time to inspect your filter, as the cold season comes to a close and summer is nearing. There are a lot of benefits to changing out your air filter, such as:

Extending the life and efficiency of your system
A surefire way to instigate a system interruption is a dirty air filter. Excess dirt that is built up on your filter can cause your whole system to run harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only will it hamper the performance of your system, but it can impact your utility bills and cause your system to overheat.

Improving indoor air quality
The purpose of an air filter is that it grabs 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 affect the health and comfort of your indoor space, particularly if someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma. With warmer temps near, pollen and mold are especially likely to be hanging around and you don’t want them moving in your home. A quality, clean air filter will help you breathe easy and stay healthy during allergy season.

Inspect your system or current air filter provider for recommendations on how regularly you should be putting in a replacement filter. For the majority of the filters through Point Heating & Cooling, we advise an annual change with the highest MERV filter that is offered. Not sure if it’s the best time to replace your air filter?
