Time for furnace filters, Desert Sun Home Inspections Carlsbad N.M.

With the cooler weather of the winter temperatures being very cold in most of the nation. There is a need to keep in mind the harder the furnace works to keep the home warm and cozy, the more attention needs to be placed on keeping the furnace filters changed on a regular basis.

In many homes I visit to inspect them, I find a large amount of furnace filters that have outlived their usefulness.

Filters are only designed to catch loose particles of debris, lint, dander, hair, skin cells, dander and dust and a multitude of other floaters in the air.

Once the filter has done it's job then it's time to do yours. Change the filter or clean it if the filter you use is a cleanable type like a HEPA Filter.

We should never find this situation when inspecting a home. After all the sellers knew we were coming for a home inspection.

Check out this filter.

Dirty filter.

Maintenance to the furnace should be maintained all year long. The blower works All year. Here we have the condesent line that has no insulation on the line. This has caused corrosion to the line and will need to be re insulated as soon as possible. The warmer weather for us here in New Mexico is just around the corner.

 

This is why you always get a "FULL Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.

Hi Charles,

Yes they are. Very important the change them on a regular basis. If not the cost could be high if the filters are not maintained properly.

Have a good day in the Seattle areas.

Hi David,

You could have swept it off with a broom then re installed it and got another two days out of it. LOL

Have a nice weekend in Colorado.

Clint, a dirty filter is one of the first signs, and an easy one to explain and photograph, that the furnace needs service.

 Great post once again Clint! Air filters in the Las Vegas Valley need to be changed quite often because of all the dirt and sand from the desert. Your post has been featured at the group:

clint- those poor neglected filters.  We in warmer climates have to remember to do the same for our A/C filters.

Hi Steven,

And it was really dirty on the interior casing or body. Too much to let go. Recommended a cleaning.

Have a good day in Washington.

Hi Vegas Bob,

Changing the filters is very important. Even more so of you have interior pets.

Letting them go can cause all kinds of furnace failures.

Have a good day and week in Vegas my friend.

Hi Kathy,

Unless you have a separate system. The furnace will still be the blower system for the A/C. There are on occasion there are multiple filters. Know your home. Replace the filters very often.

Have a good day in Delray Beach.

Hi Adrian,

Good call. Most home owners forget. Write it on the calender to remember to change the filters. Never skip a change date.

Have a great Sunday in the Seattle areas.

Hi Wayne.

Most owners never think about changing the filters till way too late. Then the issues could cost a lot to get repaired.

Have a nice day in Fort Myers today.

This is good advice for all of us. We should change those HVAC filters more frequently.
