Keeping a clean home is important, but sometimes due to hectic schedules it can be challenging to maintain the level of cleanliness that you want. One thing that can aid in lifting levels of cleanliness is regularly changing/cleaning your furnace air filter.
“The air filter is stationed at the point where air is pulled into the system. It traps air-born particles that get sucked in with the air and keeps them from blocking the blower and clogging up the coils. Clogged coils can’t heat or cool the air passing over them, and they may damage the system. So, the air filter helps your heating and cooling system do its job, keeps it running efficiently and protects it so it will last longer.
Filters also help to keep dust from building up in your ducts, or being blown into other rooms of your house. In recent years, this air cleaning function has become more important to homeowners, and manufacturers have designed filters that use your heating and air system to remove microscopic particles like dust, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, plant and mold spores, and even smoke from the air in your home.” (Heather Kolich, howstuffworks.com)
