Do you have a hunch that your furnace isn’t operating as efficiently as it could be? A dirty air filter may be your culprit. Over time, air conditioning and heater air filters accumulate dirt, dust, pollen, pet dander and other particles that are floating through your home’s air. Without regular replacement, this collection of material on the filter causes your furnace to work harder, consequently having a negative impact on your energy costs.
Not only do dirty filters slash your system’s levels of efficiency, but they also increase the chances that your furnace or air conditioning system could sustain damage. Avoid rising energy costs, expensive repairs or even replacement of your HVAC system by simply changing out an old filter. Set a reminder for yourself to replace them on a monthly basis. Buying them in bulk can save you money and ensure you always have a replacement filter on hand.
