Something you can do to keep your furnace operating efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention all the time – check your air filter. The complications a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is simple – 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 create a domino effect of issues within your system. A dirty filter reduces air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which has a negative impact on your system’s efficiency and the added wear and tear will shorten the life of your system. 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 polluted filter means filthy air. The longer you wait to fix a problem, the more time it has to further damage your system.
