Part of your home’s preventative maintenance this fall should include changing your furnace filter. A clogged filter reduces airflow, which costs you money by reducing how efficient your system is, and that means higher electricity bills and reduced lifespan of your furnace. Here are more tips to reduce your energy bill.
To avoid higher energy costs and/or expensive repairs, please ensure:
1. Your furnace filter is examined monthly and replaced every 90 days (check the manufacturer’s recommendations for full details). Try adding a reminder to your calendar for the first day of each quarter.
2. Keep your cold air return registers clean and unobstructed.
Keep in mind that some filters perform much better than others. See my video for details.
