How a replacement furnace filter will reduce your energy bills.

Are you thinking twice about turning the heater on during the winter because of what it is going to cost you at the end of the month? Good news is you can stay warm and comfortable throughout the winter just by replacing your furnace filters.

What a furnace filter does is trap all the dust and other particles in the air before it is heated and sent back to the rooms so that you have clean air circulating in the room. But with use the filter will get clogged with dirt and will block the air flow from the furnace. This makes the heater work more for longer periods of time as it has to send warmer air to the house to maintain the required temperature and thereby use up more energy and this is why you end up with very high heating bills.
