Have you ever noticed the air in your duct system getting louder? Or maybe it seems like your furnace is making a lot more news than usual. The first question that comes to mind is how long has it been since you cleaned your filter? When your filter is dirty your system has to work harder and thus you hear more noise.

 

But that’s not all. A dirty filter can cost you more money as well. In fact, a clean filter can help reduce your heating bill by as much as 5 to 15 percent. So the fact is you should be cleaning your furnace filter regularly. That means you should be checking it about once a month. Some furnaces even have an indicator light that lets you know that your filter needs to be cleaned.

 

Cleaning your filter is typically easy for most people to do themselves. You should begin by turning off the power to your furnace. Next open the service panel and locate the filter. Once you find it pull it out and take a look. If you can’t see through the filter then it needs to be cleaned.

 

You can rinse it off in your utility sink or pray it off with the hose. Allow it to dry, and then place it back inside the furnace service panel. You now have a clean filter and you should notice a difference in your unit.

I was planning a heater upgrade and received a 24 month no interest offer from Home Depot. They sent me a list of contractors and Comfort Air was the only contractor that called me before I could call anyone else. The customer support, salesperson and installers were fast, competent and incredibly supportive. From the time that I contacted them until the heater was installed was fast and the new heater is a big improvement over what I had before. Highly recommend Comfort Air for fast, efficient and professional service. I feel comfortable that they will be responsive, should there ever be an issue with my new heater!

Bradford the technician has come to our home a couple times and is always professional. I especially appreciate the exceptional customer service in the office. Every time I call, no matter who answers the phone, they always help me and go out of their way to help me understand how to troubleshoot my thermostat/heat pump. Today, I needed to revise an appt time and Rosa called me twice today to make sure she set up the appt for a time that would work for me. Fabulous service!
