Why Air Filters are Important for Your Heating System

4 Seasons Heating & Air understands that it can feel like a hassle to replace the air filter in your central heating system regularly. These air filters perform a variety of important functions. If they are dirty, they could adversely affect your health and put excess stress on your heater. This could decrease its efficiency and cause a variety of issues with it in the long run.

Protecting Your Health

If you struggle with asthma or another respiratory disease, you understand the importance of breathing clean air. Air filters in your central heating system work to remove a variety of particulates from the air in your home. Whether you have a pleated, electrically-charged, or fiberglass filter, it’ll be highly effective at filtering the air as long as it’s clean. Pollen, pet dander, and other particles that could hurt your health will all be removed from the air.

Keep Your Heater Safe

The interior of your heater needs to stay as clean as possible in order to work efficiently and effectively. The heat exchanger, in particular, needs to be kept clean and free of debris. Dust and dirt can reduce heat transfer and cause your energy bills to increase.

Regular Replacement

Having clean air filters in your system is crucial. In most homes, filters need to be replaced every few months. If too much dirt accumulates, it will impede the flow of air through the filter and your heater. When this happens, the energy efficiency of your heater will decrease. Less air will also be filtered and cause pollutants to build up.
