Your furnace filter is an underappreciated but vital component of your home’s heating system. Many Phoenix, AZ, residents may not realize the importance of regularly having their filters cleaned or changed. There is also a long list of reasons that a high-quality, properly functioning filter matters to your home’s airflow.
1. Improved Indoor Air Quality
There are plenty of options that you can consider if you’re trying to improve your indoor air quality, but the first line of defense is a high-level filter. A good furnace filter can help reduce particulate contamination from the air that your furnace is circulating around your home. Make sure to ask our service technicians which MERV rating they recommend for your furnace to get the strongest one possible.
2. Reduced Heating Costs
Since the EPA reports that somewhere between 50% and 70% of a home’s energy consumption goes to heating and cooling, finding ways to reduce that cost is important. Since a good filter allows air to flow more freely through your home, your furnace won’t have to run as often or for such long periods of time. This leads to an immediate drop in your monthly utility bills.
3. Extended Life Expectancy
Finally, a high-quality filter can potentially add years to your furnace’s lifespan. When combined with regular maintenance, a filter that keeps debris from entering your furnace can result in a system that lasts for up to two decades.
