Yes, you should
exchange the furnace air filters
regularly. Be sure and
use the indicated size for your furnace, and double check they are installed the right
way. Depending on the amount of system usage, pet dander, hair or fur, dust

suggests changing your air filter every 30 to 90 days.

items. Keeping the area clear will also help ensure
the equipment is more accessible for repairs or inspections.
If your heater requires frequent repairs, is 15 years or older,
or cannot warm your home
suggest replacing it. When a
heater or HVAC system is older, it
doesn’t operate as effectively and
could actually end up costing you
more money than it should.
