Air Filters: More Important Than You Think!

The air quality of your home can be much worse than the air quality outdoors. Interior contaminants such as dust, mould, mildew, cleaning chemicals, pet dander, and viruses can make your home a tough place to breathe. Fortunately there is a simple way to improve the air quality of your home immediately. By changing your furnace’s air filter regularly, you can prevent the distribution of harmful air contaminants.

Summitt Home Services recommends changing your home’s air filter every four months. This is the optimal time to ensure that your filter is still working to its best capacity. It can be hard to remember to change your filter, and hard to make time to go out and purchase the right size of filter. Summitt Home Services has an easy subscription plan that can ensure your air stays cleaner. With our plan, once you sign up and provide us with the size of your filter, we will ensure you have a fresh supply of filters.

Changing your air filter can also save you money! Clogged filters make furnace fans work harder to move air through your house. A clean filter means less work for your furnace fan. While your air conditioner is hard at work cooling the air in your house, it’s your furnace fan that pushes that cool air through all of your ducts. If you have a two-storey home, you know the upstairs is always warmer than the main floor. That’s because hot air rises and cool air sinks, so it’s much harder for your furnace to get the cool air upstairs. You can make it easier on your furnace and your wallet by signing up for Summitt Home Service’s air filter subscription plan and keep a fresh air filter in your furnace.
