You already know it’s a good idea to change your furnace’s air filter every one to three months to increase heating efficiency and improve the air quality inside your Matthews, North Carolina, home. Did you know that a clean furnace is just as important? Here are two ways components like a dirty furnace blower can affect you.

Debris Buildup Can Impact Your Health

The furnace blower draws heat from the furnace and moves it throughout your home. If your furnace blower is dirty, it will have to work harder to provide the warm air your household needs. Debris buildup on components decreases your indoor air quality and causes the filter to become dirty more quickly since dirt and dust pass through constantly. As a result, these circulating allergens can exacerbate allergy or asthma symptoms.

Keeping your indoor air clean is vital for maintaining a comfortable home. Contaminants in the system will worsen or cause allergic reactions or other health conditions. We offer products and services that can easily improve your indoor air quality.

Dirty Blowers Can Damage Your System

Pollutants multiply inside your furnace and can also accumulate on the blower motor. Any buildup will negatively impact heating efficiency and lead to costly repairs. Dirty blowers also increase the furnace’s load and cause increased wear on various components. This can cause the entire motor to fail.

Cleaning the blower is nothing like changing the air filter and is a job that you should always leave to an HVAC professional.
