Reasons to Check the Filter Regularly

 

There are several reasons why you need to check the filter on your furnace regularly. The most common reason a heating system breaks down is because of a dirty filter. As dirt accumulates, air cannot pass, or worse, the system overheats. The motor then has to work harder. In a best-case scenario, your unit will need to be repaired. In the worst case, if your unit is older, not replacing filters could put it over the edge and require you to buy a new one. Replacing the filter is an easy way to lengthen the life of your heating system.

When that clogged air filter is working harder, more energy is being used. And when it requires more energy to make your heating work, it causes your energy bill to skyrocket. When you consistently change your air filter, you can save from 5 to 15 percent on your utility costs.

Good air quality is important if anyone in your family suffers from allergies or asthma. Dirty air filters worsen the air quality and can exacerbate symptoms. If you have pets, it’s even more important because pet dander will accumulate in the system and then spread allergens throughout the household. If you find the air quality poor in your home, it may be time to change the filter. You can also contact us and we can advise you on a schedule to check the filter. Also, we can inspect the filter for you and recommend when a new one may be needed. Changing the filter helps to improve the air quality, as well as the efficiency for your furnace system.
