Something you can do to keep your furnace performing efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention quite a bit – check your air filter. The troubles a dirty air filter can cause 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 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 the life of your system. Your air filter also has an effect on your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home flows through it. A polluted filter means polluted air. The longer 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 unexpected bill.
