The Importance of the Air Filter

The air filter is an important part for the furnace and HVAC system. Since the filter is designed to remove dust and dirt from the air, it will have more benefits than you might realize. The filter will help keep the furnace and moving components of it clean. If dust and other pollutants get into the furnace, it will cause other parts to wear with one another and lead them to wear out quicker than they should. The air filer also helps prevent the dust from being released into the air of your home. By keeping the filter clean, you are also keeping the air in your home clean.

Regular Maintenance is Important

If you want to keep your HVAC unit working efficiently, make sure have it maintained on a regular basis. This allows us to look at parts and components of the furnace. If there is a part that is starting to fail, it is important to have it repaired as soon as possible. This will help prevent other parts from failing, as well as a costly repair bill when it is time to have it fixed. If you notice anything out of the norm between visits, make sure to contact us. This is important because if there is an unusual noise or odor you notice from the furnace, it could lead to an unexpected breakdown when you least expect it. You can also contact us if you are not sure how often the HVAC system should be inspected or maintained. This will help it to operate at top performance levels through the remaining months where it is in use.

Poor Efficiency could mean the Filter is bad

If you start to notice that the furnace is operating poorly, it could be a sign that the filter should be replaced. Make sure that the filter is checked often, and that it is replaced when needed. It is important to remember not to run the furnace without a filter. The dust and dirt can get into the furnace and cause damage to the parts. By keeping the filter clean, you can help to provide clean air to your home.
