Something you can do to keep your furnace performing efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention a lot – check your air filter. The troubles a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is clear – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is imperative for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can cause a domino effect of troubles within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which hinders your system’s efficiency and the additional wear and tear will shorten your system’s life. Your air filter is the front line for your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home flows through it. A polluted filter means filthy air. The more time you wait to get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system.
