The complications a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is clear – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is so important for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create a domino effect of troubles within your system. A dirty filter reduces air flow which causes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which negatively effects your system’s efficiency and the added wear and tear will shorten the life of your system. Your air filter also impacts your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home flows through it. A filthy filter means filthy air. The more time you wait to get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system.
