Forced Air Heaters Need Fresh Filters!

Monday, February 12th, 2018

man-with-air-filterFurnaces and heat pumps are very popular heating systems, and with good reason. They are forced air systems that can operate with great efficiency, and distributing heated air throughout a home via a network of air ducts is a great way to heat a home up promptly. Such systems can run into trouble, however, if they do not have fresh air filters in place. When you schedule routine HVAC maintenance, air filters will be changed as needed. This only happens once a year, though.

Typically, an air filter should be changed once every 1-3 months. There are a lot of factors that can affect this need, however—pets in the house, general cleanliness, and so on. You should be checking your air filter regularly to assess its condition and replacement needs. Is it really worth the trouble, you may be wondering? The answer is yes, it absolutely is. Changing your air filter is a very simple task, replacement filters are quite cheap, and the benefits of doing so are numerous.
