Why Air Filters are Important for Your Heating System

October 10, 2019

Sutton Brothers Service & Repair understands that clean air filters can increase the efficiency of your heating system and improve the cleanliness of the air in your home. Bacteria, pet dander, and dust can become airborne in your home and cause a variety of issues. Allergens can make asthma worse and create health problems if not removed from indoor air.

Clean Heaters

The interior components of your heating system need to stay clean in order to function effectively. An air filter can remove dust and other particulates from the air before it enters the heater. This will help keep the heat exchanger clean so that it can function efficiently. A clean heat exchanger will last longer and keep your energy bills lower throughout the winter months.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air can build up pollutants, especially in the winter, if it isn’t filtered properly. Pet fur, dirt, bacteria, and other harmful particles can circulate around your home and be inhaled if they are not removed. Filters, whether they’re fiberglass, pleated, or electrically charged, can get rid of a variety of particles and keep the air in your home safe to breathe.

Keeping Filters Clean

Having clean filters in your heater can improve the functionality of your unit. Dirty filters will impede airflow and reduce the amount of air that can be cleaned by them. On average, filters should be replaced every three to six months. Homes with pets or in dusty areas might need to have their air filters replaced more often.
