The Importance of Furnace Filters

Why you want to check and change your filters regularly

Furnace Filter

Regularly cleaning or replacing the air filters in your home offers numerous benefits. Depending on the type of heating and cooling system(s) in your home or business, you may have various filters installed for specific purposes.

Most heating and cooling systems employ a filter to keep the system clean and operating efficiently.

Depending on the type used by your system, filters that are not regularly changed or cleaned will eventually become dirty and clogged. This can restrict airflow to the equipment, causing your system to work harder and deliver less comfort while consuming more fuel. While removing a filter may temporarily increase airflow, failing to replace it will accumulate dirt and debris in your equipment, increasing the risk of preventable breakdowns and premature failure. Considering the cost of replacing equipment and energy bills associated with maintaining indoor comfort, investing time in checking or replacing/cleaning your filter is a relatively small effort with significant returns.

Air filters on your heating and cooling equipment also filter the air circulated to your home.

If you or others suffer from allergies or find excessive dust accumulation, paying regular attention to your filter is a good starting point for seeking relief. You may want to consider a higher-quality filter.

Cheap disposable filters keep puppies and small children out of your ductwork. They are better than nothing but could be more effective at filtering out smaller particles if you seek improved air quality.

Filters with higher quality ratings, such as MERV filters, filter dust, allergens, and other particles from your indoor air more efficiently. The rating indicates the filter’s effectiveness, with higher ratings indicating stricter filtration. However, it’s important to note that not all systems have a powerful blower to support denser filters. If you’re considering upgrading your filter quality, please check your system literature or contact us to determine which types are compatible.
