Change Your Furnace Filter Today For These 3 Reasons
We’re about four months into heating season 2020-2021 – which means your furnace has already logged a lot of hours keeping your family safe and warm in your New Jersey or Staten Island home.
The question is, have you checked your HVAC air filter lately?
Most of us don’t do this simple heating maintenance task nearly often enough: although many factors influence the frequency with which you should change your furnace filter – how air tight your home is, whether or not you smoke or have pets that shed, and what type of material your air filter is made from, to name a few – a good rule of thumb is that your air filter should be checked once a month and changed every two to three months.
You may wonder if changing an air filter that often is overkill – after all, your furnace will run just fine with the older filter in place, won’t it? Actually, it won’t: when you run your furnace with a filter clogged by dust, fur, and other particles, you can expect to experience:
Lower air quality – A dirty filter won’t block as many pollutants, and your indoor air (and lungs) will pay the price.
Higher bills – Forcing air through a dirty filter requires more energy than pushing it through a clean filter – energy that you pay for with higher energy bills and less comfort.
More frequent repairs – A dirty filter causes your heating system to overwork, which often leads to problems down the road: simply put, the more strain you put on your heater, the more likely it will need heating repairs – or even a premature replacement.
The good news is that furnace air filters are relatively inexpensive to replace – and thanks to our partnership with New Filters Plus, it’s easier than ever to do.
