The troubles a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is simple – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is imperative for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can lead to a domino effect of problems within your system. A dirty filter blocks air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which negatively effects your system’s efficiency and the extra wear and tear will decrease the life of your system. Your air filter also has an effect on your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home goes 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.
