Something you can do to keep your furnace running efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The troubles a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is clear – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is so important for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create a domino effect of problems within your system. A dirty filter blocks 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 goes through it. A dirty filter means filthy air. The longer you wait to fix a problem, the more time it has to further damage your system.
