If you own a furnace, you know how satisfying it can be when it kicks on and provides you with all the heat you desire. So, when something goes awry, you might begin to panic. However, there are some things that you can do to avoid a furnace malfunction. No, we don’t expect you to understand the inner-workings of your system, but we do want you to be aware of the impact that one little component has on your entire furnace system – we are talking about your air filter.
Here at GRmetro Heating & Cooling, we can’t stress enough the importance of having your air filters regularly changed by an HVAC professional. Many homeowners minimize the importance of changing their air filters, so it might only be changed during their annual maintenance visit. But air filters need to be changed every 1-3 months to keep the furnace running efficiently and effectively. Failure to do so can result in some pretty negative side effects. If you are overdue for an air filter replacement, don’t wait any longer.
