Windy winter days and high snow fall can quickly block external vents to your heating system. Debris such as leaves and interferances such as bird and insect nests can also cause problems.
It's important to assure that these vents are clear at all times to keep your equipment running smoothly and efficiently and to exhaust properly.
In this cold weather, your heating system is working hard to make sure your home is warm and comfortable. The filters in your furnace are there to catch any dust and debris from entering the unit and damaging the equipment. Filters in your air quality system catch any dust or allergens before they are passed through the ductwork and into the air you breathe. Keeping these filters clean and replaced as necessary is good practice in not only your health but the health and longevity of your equipment.
