The experts at Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating in Saint Louis will inspect both your wiring and every moving part of your furnace to ensure your furnace is that your furnace is functioning as it should this season and many seasons to come. Something you can do to keep your furnace performing efficiently throughout the year, and something we mention quite a bit – check your air filter. The troubles a dirty air filter can generate are endless, and the solution is clear – change your air filter. It’s such an easy thing to do and it is so important for the life and efficiency of your system. A dirty air filter can cause a domino effect of problems within your system. A dirty filter restricts air flow which forces your furnace to work harder to keep up with your thermostat, which negatively effects your system’s efficiency and the added wear and tear will decrease the life of your system. Your air filter also impacts your home’s indoor air quality as all the air inside your home is passing through it. A polluted filter means filthy air. The more time you wait to get a problem fixed, the more time it has to further damage your system. When it comes to your furnace it’s best to be proactive and address problems before they become a breakdown, along with an unplanned bill.
