For many newcomers to this industry, we need to talk about air filters. Unless you’ve stumbled upon an article about heat pumps recently, or you grew up with your parents or friends showing you the air filter in their furnace, you might not even be aware that your heat pump has a filter to begin with. Don’t worry, we won’t shame anyone. Sometimes things aren’t exactly spelled out in an easy way for homeowners.
Well, let’s get started on the right foot by first talking about air filters–what they do, why they’re there, and why you should definitely replace yours if it’s been a while. Heat pumps and other forced-air heating or cooling systems rely on heat pumps to keep the sensitive interior components intact. If your air filter goes for a long period of time without being changed out or cleaned, you might end up requiring heat pump repairs in Walker, MI more often than someone with a system that’s had a filter changed regularly.
