Did You Know That The Air Inside Your Home Is Actually Dirtier Than The Air Outside Your Home?
Those nasty contaminants like dust, pollen, pet dander, mold and even dust mites (gross) are trapped inside your house; living the life of luxury. Every time you walk across your carpet or shake out a blanket you are kicking up these nasty contaminants; that then circle around you and your family.
Although we can never truly get rid of all of all contaminants, a good furnace filter is electrostatically charged to capture them through your heating and cooling vents. A high quality the filter and a regularly clean/replaced filter, the better it can do it’s job.
How Can a Dirty Filter Affect Your Health?
Do you smoke? The smelly contaminates from smoking linger around longer than you’d think. Odor’s and harmful contaminates from smoking can get can get stuck and recycled around your home. Which is not healthy for anyone.
If you or anyone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma, a good air filter for your furnace is even more important. A high quality clean filter is designed to protect not only your family from odors, bacteria, germs, and other respiratory irritants; but it also keeps these same pollutants from clinging to the inside of your equipment.
So how often should you change your filter?
Experts agree that you should replace your air filters every 3 months; possibly sooner depending on air quality. If you are unsure about indoor air quality check the filter monthly. If you notice the filter material is getting discolored or noticeably dirty change out the filter.
Failing to replace your air filters regularly can really lead to reduced system efficiency, greater energy costs, and poor air quality and even system failure. Think of your furnace or air condition system like the human body. They both have to have air intake to survive. The less air we have come into our lungs the harder it is to function properly. If we don’t get enough air in we eventually suffocate and die, your system works the same way. If your system can’t get air because your filter is clogged you run the risk of system failure.
