Is it time?
Are you aware of the risks involved in not maintaining your furnace and all its components, especially the furnace filter? When was the last time you checked your filter and replaced it with a new one?
Did you know that a dirty furnace filter can block air flow to your furnace and potentially cause your furnace to malfunction or shut off?
Following are 3 risks & potential hazards caused by filthy filters:
- Blocks air flow to the furnace (can cause damage to the furnace motor or trigger the high limit safety mechanism to shut down the furnace);
- Can interfere with the proper function of the air conditioner (by freezing the coil);
- Will not filter dust and micro-organisms from the air (increasing the likelihood of allergic reactions or breathing irritants, and will not support speedy recovery from colds & flus);
In the long term, if the filter is left unchecked, this can lead to problems that require costly furnace repairs.
Ensuring that your furnace is maintained on an annual basis keeps your home comfortable, safe, and 'healthy'.
Most importantly, a yearly tune-up, including putting in a new furnace filter on a regular basis, maintains the efficiency of your furnace and increases its longevity.
