Why Changing Your Furnace Filter Is Important

Furnaces are kicking into high gear, so make sure your heating system is well-maintained.

Air filters trap pet hair, dust, and other irritating particles so that your furnace system delivers fresh, clean air back into your home.

Eventually, the filter traps so much dust and debris that air can’t properly filter or travel to the HVAC system.

Here’s a list of the top four reasons for changing your furnace filter regularly:

Improve Air Quality

A dirty filter will affect the air quality in your home and can make things especially difficult if anyone in the family has asthma or allergies.

A clean filter helps eliminate pet dander, pollen, dust, and other dirt particles that add to poor air quality.

System Working Properly

Forgetting to change the air filter can affect how your furnace is working, leading to costly repairs or maintenance calls.

If the filter gets clogged, this will affect how the air flows through the system and cause it to overheat.

High Energy Bills

When the filter is dirty, your system has to work much harder to pump the same amount of air through the vents.

If it takes more energy for the system to work correctly, your energy costs will increase.

System Failure

Did you know that a dirty filter is one of the main reasons an HVAC system will break down?

Overheating can cause the motor to work harder and eventually wear out.

Keep your furnace working as long as possible by changing your furnace filter regularly.
