Do I Really Need to Change my Furnace Filter?

YES! Freezing temperatures can make your furnace work harder and without the proper maintenance it can cause the unit to break.

During peak winter months, one of the main causes of failure is a clogged filter. Whether a residential, commercial or industrial furnace, your HVAC system needs the filter changed with more frequency during peak seasons. This is an easy and inexpensive step but a very important one!

Furnace filters can be trusted with catching dust, pet dander, and other airborne bacteria, depending on the efficiency, but when your filter is old a few things happen: your filter gets clogged, your furnace has to work harder to push air through, and what does make it through are particles of the dust and build up. Checking and changing your furnace filter regularly help avoid all of these things.

A clean filter will not only help your furnace continue to operate efficiently but it will also extend its life, improve air quality and help you with allergies and asthma.

7 Tips to keep your electric bill low this summer.

Summer is here, bringing extreme temperatures and working your A/C overtime. Keep your electric bill down with a few simple tips…

  1. Change your air filter – Under extreme weather, your A/C will work harder.  Changing the filter every 30 days helps your unit work more efficiently and consume less energy
  2. Schedule a check-up – Have a professional inspect your unit and point out any inefficiencies
  3. Aim for comfort – When home, set your thermostat between 70 and 75 degrees to balance energy and cost savings without sacrificing your comfort. Keep in mind that a single degree change can represent a 1 to 2% increase to your electric bill.
  4. Don’t waste energy – if you are gone during the day, keep your unit on but raise the setting to about 80 degrees. It will reduce energy consumption but keep moisture from building
  5. Keep it closed – Make sure windows are closed and curtains drawn to keep the heat out
  6. Use ceiling fans – Fans help circulate cool air and can make it feel 3 to 8 degrees cooler
  7. Unplug it – Computers and other home electronics generate heat. Unplug electronics when not in use
