Furnace Filters by Treat’s Heating & Cooling

As the temperatures fall, you want to make sure that your furnace is running efficiently so you are not left without heat at the most critical time.  When it is cold, your furnace is working its hardest to move air through the ductwork since most of us spend the majority of our time inside during the winter months.

Furnace filters are trustworthy when it comes to catching dust, pet dander and other airborne bacteria but when your filter becomes dirty and clogged your furnace has to work harder to push the air through and often times the particles provide build-up.  Being diligent about changing your filters can help avoid all of this.

1 inch pleated filters can be changed as often as once a month.  These filters generally block bigger particles from getting into your home but not the smaller particles.  With high efficiency filters the 3 inch filters are most common and homeowners change these filters every three months.

It also helps to consider you habits inside the home to determine how often you should change your filter.  If you have pets with a lot of dander, a smoker inside your home or you have allergies, you may want to change your filters more often.
