In order to have good quality air in the home this winter, the most important thing you can do is inspect the filters. The filters should be checked on a regular basis. When recommended, they should also be replaced. If at any time you notice the filter has become clogged and dirty, make sure to replace it as soon as you can. Depending on the household, some filters become dirty quicker than others do. Having the furnace filters inspected and replaced on a regular basis can help keep your home safe and healthy. The filters should remain fresh and clean as long as possible. The filters are designed to collect and trap the indoor air pollutants and contaminants. This is important because it collects these pollutants before it can escape into the air and be distributed throughout your home. 

Regular maintenance is important

To help provide good quality air in your home, make sure to have the heating system maintained on a regular basis. We can inspect the furnace, ductwork, and thermostat. This way you can help to ensure the system is working as effective as possible. The ductwork should also be inspected to make sure it is clean. If there is too much dirt and dust buildup, the ductwork will need to be cleaned out. The thermostat should also be inspected to make sure it is able to effectively send information to the heater itself. That way the heating system can produce and maintain the temperature that you have the thermostat set at.

Inspect the filters often

The filters of the heating system should be inspected on a regular basis. When it is recommended, the filters should be changed. At anytime if you notice that a majority of the filter is clogged with dust and dirt, make sure to replace it. This can help to ensure the cleanest possible air for your home. The filters can collect any pet dander, mold spores, or other harmful pollutants. This can help for you to breathe easier. It can also help reduce the chance of allergy or asthma symptoms.

Change the filters when recommended

Air filters can have a large effect not only the indoor air quality, but also the way the furnace operates. As the filter begins to collect various bits of dust, pet dander, and pollen, it will become clogged. Over time, the clogged filter can build up with more dust, which will then make it difficult for air to pass through it. Having a clogged filter can cause the blower to work hard, which will then cause the energy bill to increase each month. A dirty filter can also cause the blower motor to overheat with time, and eventually burn out. This can cause you unneeded stress, time, and money to have it fixed. The best option is to replace the filter to help prevent further damage and wear to other parts of the heating system. We can also inspect the heating system and filter to ensure it will work effectively this winter.
