The filter of your HVAC system is important for a variety of reasons. The main one is to help keep the air in the home as clean as possible. It will help to capture dirt, dust, and other pollutants that are in the air of your home. Without the filter, the dirt particles can get into the furnace system. When this happens, it can do damage to the moving parts and components of the furnace. Having the furnace inspected regularly will help to ensure that everything is able to work at top performance levels and efficiency.
How the Filter Helps
The furnace is important for your home because it will help to heat and keep it comfortable. In the winter, regular maintenance should include the system, ductwork, thermostat, and the filter. Anytime there is an issue, it will need to be checked as son as possible so further problems do not develop. We can also advise you on a schedule that you should follow so everything is working as best that it can.
Check the furnace filter regularly. This can be determined by who is in your home or if you have pets. If you have pets or animals, the filter will need to be changed on a more regular basis. This is because pet fur and dander can get into the system and filter. Those who allergic to pets will find it beneficial to clean the filter regularly.
