How a Filter Affects Your Furnace

Monday, February 17th, 2020

man-holding-air-filterThere are a lot of different parts within your furnace that allow it to make heat effectively and do its job throughout the colder months. From your heat exchanger to your blower fan to the housing your furnace sits in, and even to the seemingly inconsequential filter, these different parts are all vital to your comfort which is why maintaining them, and repairing them when necessary, is important.

Let’s pause for a  moment and take a deeper look at the role your filter plays. All too often, we find that customers brush off the idea of the filter needing much care because they don’t think it will have much of an impact on the operation of their heater.

We want to explain why your filter is important and how best you can keep it in good shape.
