Is your furnace ready to start heating your home? If you haven’t thought about your forced-air heating system since shutting it down last spring, there’s a decent chance you haven’t checked its air filter recently. Checking and changing air filters is a relatively simple process, but it makes a huge difference in your home.

Why are air filters important?

To start, air filters are the first line of defense against airborne toxins that can lower your indoor air quality. If people in your household deal with asthma, severe allergies or other respiratory issues, poor air quality can exacerbate their symptoms. It can also make rooms much less comfortable.

Clean air filters improve airflow in your home’s HVAC systems. This will ensure energy efficiency and lower your energy bills. Plus, preventing debris from entering your furnace reduces its wear and tear, saving you money on service and repairs!

How often should you check and change your filter?

During the peak heating and cooling seasons, you should check your furnace’s air filters each month. If the filter is located on the side of your furnace, you can lift it out. If it’s behind a return-air vent, you may need to unscrew it.

You should change the filter if it’s dirty or clogged with dust and debris. Proactive homeowners in our part of the country often change their filters with each change in the seasons.

Are furnace filters used during summer?

The air filter in your home’s furnace sees a lot of use in the warmer months. Even though your home’s forced-air heating wasn’t on this summer, your central air conditioning was cycling cooled air through the same ductwork. A clean filter keeps dust, mold, pollen and other pollutants from cycling through your ducts.
