Changing out your air filter is a simple task and there are lots of paybacks such as:

Air filters clean your air as it flows around your home by trapping contaminants. If a member of your household is enduring allergies or asthma, a quality air filter can do wonders to help assist with managing the symptoms. And if you have a pet, you know pet dander is a constant challenge. A quality, clean air filter will allow you to enjoy the air.

An unclean air filter is one of the leading sources for system failures. When your air filter is unclean your system has to operate harder to achieve results, which will show on your energy costs and it can also cause your unit to overheat. Anticipatory maintenance such as air filter replacement will go a long ways in ensuring that your system has a long, effective life.
