What Is An Exclusive Listing?
Heating with natural gas is the inexpensive, efficient choice for most Toronto homeowners. However, it’s not entirely maintenance-free. It is always important to stay on top of and maintain your furnace air filter, regularly. This is especially essential if you heat with natural gas and notice your house is smelling a little musty. Or, if you find yourself rubbing your eyes or feeling a little hay-feverish, you’ll want to check it out. In other words, if your dust bunnies are starting to colonize, it might be time to change your air filter.
The filter traps dust, pet hair and other airborne dirt, and ensures the warm air that flows through your home is as clean as possible. This is also the case for cold air, if you have central air conditioning. Some filters also screen out pollen, mildew, and even bacteria. With this in mind, if you don’t change the filter regularly – say, every couple of months – it’ll get clogged up with all that gunk. The dirtier the filter, the harder the furnace has to work to suck in returning air. This will cause unnecessary wear and tear on your expensive furnace and will drive your heating bill up. Worse, more of the airborne nasties will stay in your home! Who wants to breathe in that stuff?
Changing the filter is usually a pretty simple task.
