However simple they seem, furnace filters play a much larger role in heating system efficiency than most people realize. Dirty air filters are a leading source of furnace malfunction or failure. On the other hand, clean filters help your heating system run better while decreasing overall wear on the furnace. Filters capture and hold dust, pollen, mold, and even microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses that would otherwise be circulated back into your household air.
Filters are also important components in furnace efficiency. Routine filter changes can result in appreciable cash savings on your seasonal heating bills. Furnace efficiency is directly affected by the condition of the unit’s filter. If the filter is dirty, the furnace will run harder and more often, consuming more fuel to maintain your home’s interior temperature settings. The dirty filter will restrict the heating system’s needed air flow, reducing its ability to effectively burn fuel and turn it into heat for your home.
Clean filters help your furnace make better use of the fuel they consume to generate heat. This improved efficiency means that your furnace will use less fuel to warm your house, which cuts your heating bills. Better heating system efficiency means that less heat and energy is wasted; you don’t end up paying to warm air that simply escapes unused.
