The troubles a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is easy – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is vital for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can create a domino effect of issues within your system. A dirty filter reduces air flow which makes your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which negatively effects your system’s efficiency and the additional wear and tear will shorten your system’s life. Your air filter also impacts your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home is passing through it. A filthy filter means polluted air.
