The importance of having an HVAC maintenance plan cannot be stressed more. In the long run, it can potentially save you hundreds and even thousands of dollars in costly repairs. Aside from the monetary benefits, there’s a myriad of benefits that regular maintenance can offer.
What is your home air filter?
Your home air filter is in the air intake for your furnace and air conditioner system. Air from your home is pulled through the intake filter (as seen in the image to the right) and from there into your heating and cooling system where it is heated or cooled to equal your indoor temperature settings. The filter collects any dust in the air, cleaning your indoor air as it conditions the temperature. You will be surprised at how much dust exists in the air your breathe. A good filter promotes good health! There are probably between one and three intake vents most commonly located in the ceiling in different areas of your home. Conduct a quick walk-through to locate all the air intake vents in your home.
