It’s important that you change or clean your furnace filter at least once a month during the winter months. When inspecting and changing the filter, it’s critical that you reinsert the filter (or insert the new filter) in the proper direction. Air is designed to travel one way through a filter; if you place the filter in backwards, air flow will be restricted and a number of problems can arise as a result. Watch this short video clip to see how to properly install a furnace filter to avoid these problems.
Installing a furnace filter is one thing, but servicing heating equipment is quite another. If your furnace is acting up, call a heating and cooling company in Portland to keep your family warm this winter. We are still a couple of months away from the really cold weather setting in, so schedule a furnace inspection and tune-up with an HVAC services provider to ensure that your heating system is in tip-top shape for the upcoming season.
