Something you can do to keep your furnace performing efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention a lot – check your air filter. The complications a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is easy – 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 lead to a domino effect of issues within your system. A dirty filter restricts air flow which causes 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 is passing through it. A filthy filter means polluted air. The more time you wait to get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address complications before they become a breakdown, along with an unplanned bill.
