A furnace is a machine that is often taken for granted.  Furnaces quietly heat and cool our homes and businesses while being hidden in a closet or basement, out of sight and out of mind.

It seems that the only time we pay respect to these machines is when they are not working properly.  The fact is that these furnaces need proper maintenance to keep them working as efficiently as possible.

Well, there is a simple and easy way to insure that your furnace is getting the attention it needs, and that’s by changing your furnace filter.  Changing the filter on your furnace is very easy, yet very important.  It takes only a few minutes to replace a furnace filter, yet the benefits are huge!  Replacing your furnace filter regularly helps keep your heating and cooling costs low, while providing you cleaner air at the same time.

As furnace filters get dirty, they become more efficient at catching dust up to a certain point.  Then, if the furnace filter is not changed, it will begin to restrict airflow.  This causes your furnace to work much harder to heat and cool your home because it must run longer, thus using more electricity.

So make sure you give your furnace the proper attention that it deserves.  For your benefit and the benefit of your furnace, change your filter on a regular schedule!
