The Importance of Your Heater’s Air Filter

Monday, October 21st, 2019

Heaters aren’t magic. They don’t just turn on and wondrously turn cold air warm. Heaters like furnaces consume fuel, either gas to fuel burners, or electricity to heat coils, that eventually turn the air in your home warm enough to be comfortable. Homeowners often forget that heating systems have air filters at all, because without the knowledge of how these systems work—it makes sense to forget that there’s a filter as part of the process.

These filters exist to protect the interior of your HVAC system. When these filters get dirty, they inhibit the airflow that goes through your heater, eventually causing the system to overheat. The more dust or debris in a filter clogging the airflow, the more likely you are to need serious heating repair in Clayton, NC.

Keep reading and we’ll fill you in on just how important it is to replace your heater’s air filter this winter.

Monday, February 11th, 2019
