The filter on your home should be changed on a regular basis. This will help keep the furnace operating efficiently when it runs this winter. If the filter is clogged, then you may notice the furnace working harder. That is because the air will be more difficult to pull through the filter and into the system. It can then lead to extra wear and stress for the system. We can also recommend when they filter should be checked to ensure it is clean. Based on a schedule, the filter should be replaced as well. This will help the system to work without putting extra strain on it. A clean filter will also increase the quality of air in your home.
It is also recommended that you have an extra filter on hand. This is beneficial incase you need to replace the filter on the weekend, holiday, or after hours. You may notice that sometimes the programmable thermostat will notify you that the filter is in need of being changed or replaced. If you are not sure if the thermostat has that capability, contact us. We can answer any questions you have, or recommend a new thermostat if one is needed.
Improve Air Quality
You will want the air quality to be the best it can be this winter. If the air is poor, it will be more difficult to breathe. If anyone in the home suffers from allergies or asthma, they will notice the poor air quality almost right away. On some occasions, it may be beneficial to get an air purifier or air cleaner. This will help to remove any pollutants or contaminants that are in the air. This can trap it in the cleaner, and release the clean air back into your home again.
