The Best Way to Damage Your Furnace – Dirty, Clogged Filters


Dirty filters are the most common causes of furnace problems. A filter that is clogged with dust, pet dander and other debris will cause your furnace to work harder because of decreased airflow. For most filter types, it is important to change it monthly to keep your system running at peak performance. The benefits of regularly changing your air filter are: 

  • Extended furnace life
  • Reduced energy bills
  • Improved air quality

Changing the filter is only one step of preventive maintenance you should take for your furnace. For your system to operate safely and efficiently, be sure to schedule a seasonal furnace checkup performed by an HVAC tech. These steps, when combined with replacing the filter regularly, will help your unit last longer and need fewer repairs.
