Why Change Your Furnace Filter Every Month?
Most furnace manufacturers recommend changing your furnace filter every month. Your furnace filter is responsible for removing dirt, dust, pet hair, and more from the air you breathe. And while it does a good job, it gets dirty pretty quickly. Think about it. Your furnace and air conditioner run pretty much non-stop all year long. Every day the air in your home is cycled through your heating and cooling system dozens and dozens of times. Each time your furnace or AC kicks on, more dust and dirt build up. By the end of one month, most filters are coated in dust. Whether you have a regular 5” furnace filter or a 5” HEPA filter, changing it monthly is critical to the operation of your system.
A Dirty Filter Can Stop Your Furnace from Operating
Did you know that filter-related failures are probably one of the most common furnace problems we see? Today’s high-efficiency furnaces and air conditioners are programmed to stop working if the air filter is too dirty and causes too much resistance. A dirty, clogged filter limits the airflow, causing heat and pressure to build up in the furnace. Some models of high-efficiency furnaces are sensitive to the problem and will often shut down before a dirty filter causes more trouble. How aggravating would it be to pay for a repair call when the only problem was a dirty filter?
Changing Your Furnace Filter Will Save You Money on Energy Bills
There’s an unseen, added bonus to changing your media filter or HEPA filter – money savings. A dust-coated filter makes it harder for the air to flow through your air handler. The result is that your furnace or air conditioner is forced to work harder to move the air. This means they will use more energy to heat or cool your home. The result is higher energy bills.
Changing your air filter every month is a wise thing to do, and we’d like to make it easy by providing easy access to 5” filters. Save money, aggravation, and time by coming by Lancaster Brothers for your furnace filters. We’d love to see you!
