The Importance of Changing Your Filters

Health is always “in style.” The basics of being healthy include eating right, exercising, having regular checkups at the doctor, and plenty of rest. Some other little things can also be done to promote physical health. For example, your furnace filters can affect your health.  

The filters help trap particles that could contaminate your household air, making the air you breathe cleaner. However, the trapped dust and bits can build up on the filter and clog it. A clogged filter means less space for the air from your furnace to get through to the rest of your home, so your furnace is working harder to get out the same amount of air it produces with a cleaner filter. This wastes both money and energy.  

Also, a clogged air filter will not be as effective at keeping your air pure as a clean filter. The good news is that cleaning or changing your filter is fairly simple, and you can do it yourself at home. You can buy filters at your local hardware store, and they range in price depending on the type of filter. You should check your filter at least once a month and change it if it is dirty.  

Though you will be spending money on filters, they can sometimes be bought in packs of 4 or more, and you will be saving money in the long run. Changing your furnace filter can help save money and energy and help to keep your household air clean.
