Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Q: How often does my furnace filter need to be changed?

A: This depends on the filter system that you have in place. Standard-sized 16 x 25 x 1 filters need to be replaced at least every 2-3 months. If you have a larger media air filter (20 x 25 x 5), these should be changed once a year. However, if your family or a family member has asthma, allergies, or if you have heavy shedding pets, your filters may need to be changed more often.

Q: How often should I clean my furnace?

A: There are varying answers to this question. Dust and debris can hinder the performance of your furnace, and cleaning around it and the internal compartment will help to maximize its efficiency. We would suggest that this is done at least once per year to ensure that it is operating as designed. However, the internal compartment has many components that require a working knowledge of them. During your annual maintenance, your furnace repair and maintenance professional will be able to tell you if the unit’s internal compartment requires cleaning.
Indicators for a dirty furnace and ducts:
1. Open one of your vent covers and look inside. Check if the inside contains any dirt, debris, or matted dust.
2. Examine the return air registers for dust buildup, particularly if there are thick and fuzzy coatings of dust.
3. Pull out your air filter. If the air filter is clogged with dust, then air flow is being restricted. This causes more dust to settle and build up in the return ducts as well as other areas of the unit.
4. Open the furnace compartment. Examine the blower fan, motor, and furnace controls for signs of dust. The more dust you see, the bigger the problem you may have.
