When you are inspecting the furnace for fall, always remember to check the filter. This is important because the filter is often forgotten about, but it does have an important job to keep the furnace working properly. If the filter becomes clogged with dirt and dust, then a new filter will have purchased and replaced in the system. Over time the pollutants in the home will collect on the filter. This will decrease the efficiency and performance of the furnace. It will also lead to poor air quality in your home. It is also important to remember to keep a filter in the furnace system at all times. If it runs without one, it can cause the dust to get in and damage parts of the furnace. It can increase the chance that the dirt will be distributed throughout the home again. This can lead to difficult breathing, especially if you suffer from allergies or asthma.
Replacing the Filter When Needed
Always make sure you check the filter on the furnace system on a regular basis. When it is recommended, make sure to replace the filter. There are several different kinds and types of furnaces to choose from. You will want to make sure you have one that is designed and beneficial for the HVAC system in your home. If you were unsure which type of filter to get, we could advise you on the options and recommend the one that will increase the performance level. If the filter is ignored and not replaced, it can cause damage to the furnace system, as well as a higher energy bill. Replacing the filter when it is needed can also help the system to last as long as possible. It can also help keep the furnace operating during the colder winter months. This can help to keep you home warm and comfortable.
Signs the Filter Needs Attention
Between regular inspections, there might be some signs that a new filter is needed. It is always recommended to contact us at the first sign of any issue. This way we can inspect the filter and advise you on the options you have so you can help keep the furnace working efficiently. Some signs that the filter needs to be cleaned or replaced can be determined by the airflow you feel through the vents and registers. If there is lack of airflow, it could be caused by an air filter issue, or an issue in the ductwork. Always make sure to contact us and we can inspect the unit for you.
Improving the Air Quality in Your Home
Along with helping your furnace to run efficiently, having a clean filter can improve the air quality in your home. This is because the filter can stop and collect the particles of dust and pollutants that might be in the air. By doing this, you will notice easier breathing by you and your family. Having a good quality filter can also improve the comfort level in your home, making it pleasant to be in.
