With all of the things that have to be taken care of around the home, we could all use a little help simplifying things if possible. When it comes to maintaining the furnace and air conditioner in your home, changing the filter is a simple task that will help the unit function properly. However, remembering to change that filter can become a bit of a hassle. Put it off for too long and suddenly the furnace no longer works properly.
Upgrading Your Filter
So, you go out of your way and spend more on a fancy filter that should last you 3 to 6 months instead of just one. You check on it after 30 days just to see how everything is working only to find that the filter is filthy and already needs to be replaced. Is there something wrong with that filter or could there be bigger indoor air quality issues at hand?
Help Your Filters Keep Up
The real problem may be located within your HVAC system, more specifically the duct work. Over the years layer after layer of dust and debris settle within your duct work, and unless you have them professionally cleaned this mess will remain inside your filters, your furnace, and your home. The reason why your upgraded filters can’t keep up is because there is way too much debris flowing through it with every cycle of the system. Clean out these ducts and you will get the most out of your upgraded filters.
