When was the last time you changed your heater filters in your home or office? Many people wait a really long time to change them, either because they forget or they don't understand how important a filter replacement is to keep your heating and cooling systems running smoothly. You may be surprised to find out that most heating and cooling professionals recommend that you change or clean your replacement furnace filters at least once every three months if not more often. During seasons of high use, it's even recommended that you change your filter every month. Even simply checking your filter once a month is a good idea to ensure that the motor in your system is not overworking itself to get the job done. So pull out your filter now and see if its heavily covered in dust. If you can't see the white fibers of your filter, then you know you've waited too long to change it. If you need a replacement, Your Filter Connection has the size you need. Finding your filter is rather easy, all you need to do is pull it from the compartment of your heating unit. you'll find it to be rectangular in shape, sliding easily in and out of the system. The white fibers used in your filter are pleated and covered in an aluminum wiring that can be compared to a chicken coup. Just shaking the air filter isn't really enough to obtain all the dust off, if you are planning to reuse your filter, vacuuming it with a hose or spraying it with a garden hose will be necessary to keep it completely clean.
