to attend and celebrations to be had. With all of this going on, your heating system is not exactly the first thing you are concerned with. A lot of people forget to change their air filters during the winter. However, this small oversight can hike up your utility bills and take a toll on heating systems. Below are some reasons why you add “change the air filter” to your to-do list.
- Clogged air filters force your furnace to work harder. A clean air filter, on the other hand, helps your furnace operate at peak efficiency. A furnace that functions properly drives your energy costs down.
- Dirty air filters provide the perfect conditions for poor indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality affects your health by worsening preexisting health conditions. Clean air filters can reduce indoor air pollutants and improve your overall health.
- Routine maintenance of your HVAC system extends the life of your heating equipment. This includes changing the air filters on a routine basis or as needed. We recommend changing your air filters once every month during the winter.
