Why you should replace your air filter this winter

We stress regular maintenance on your HVAC system all the time, but this doesn’t just mean yearly tune-ups – it also involves assessing your air filters. It’s an easy way to help keep your system operating smoothly and enhance your indoor air quality, and you can easily do it by yourself! Today is the best time to examine your filter, as the cold season comes to a conclusion and summer is approaching. There are a lot of benefits to getting a replacement air filter, such as:

Extending the life and efficiency of your system
A guaranteed way to trigger a system breakdown is a dirty air filter. Excess dirt that is built up on your filter can cause your whole system to work harder than it should to keep you cool. Not only will it hamper the performance of your system, but it can escalate your utility bills and end with an overheated system.

Increasing indoor air quality
The goal of an air filter is that it grabs contaminants through your air system before it enters 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 house, especially if someone in your house suffers from allergies or asthma. With spring around the corner, pollen and mold are especially expected to be hanging around and you certainly don’t like the idea of it circulating in your house. A quality, clean air filter will help your family breathe easy and stay healthy all through the allergy season.

Inspect your system or ask your HVAC technician for guidance on how regularly you should be putting in a replacement filter. For many filters through Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc, we advise an annual change with the highest MERV filter available. Not sure if it’s the best time to exchange your air filter?
