The complications a dirty air filter can create are endless, and the solution is simple – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is so important for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can cause a domino effect of issues within your system. A dirty filter restricts air flow which causes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which has a negative impact on your system’s efficiency and the added wear and tear will shorten your system’s life. Your air filter is the front line for your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home flows through it. A dirty filter means filthy air. The more time you wait to get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system.
