Although often overlooked or forgotten, a dirty furnace filter is the most common reason a heating system breaks down. If you haven’t replaced your filter since last winter, you could face a whole host of issues this upcoming year. Prevent any avoidable damage to your furnace, home and family by replacing your filter every month during the winter and summer months.
- Build-up causes clogs in filters and when air doesn’t pass through, your filter has to work harder which eventually causes overheating. When a furnace overheats, it can cause serious damage.
- If your furnace filter is dirty, you and your family are breathing in dirty air. This can lead to problems for people with allergies especially. More importantly, dirty furnaces can produce deadly amounts of carbon monoxide.
- According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average homeowner spends roughly $2,200 every year on their energy bills. However, when air filters are regularly replaced, this cost could be reduced by around 5-15%.
