How Does a Broken Furnace Contaminate the Air in a Home?

If you're like most people, then you're probably spending the majority of your time indoors. With that being said, indoor air quality should be high on your list when it comes to health concerns and the overall comfort of your home. Many things can have an impact on indoor air quality, but the main component is your furnace.

Filter Changes

A dirty and aged air filter is the most common way a furnace can contaminate the air in any home. If you fail to change the filters of your furnace, this could cause extreme overheating and damage to the unit. Also, the furnace will struggle to remove dust and debris from the air, sabotaging its efficiency and lifespan. Your air filter should be changed at least once ever three months, or whatever the recommendations are of the manufacturer. 

Buildups of dust debris within the furnace are key components of compromised air quality in your home. Therefore, systems should be cleaned and sealed on a regular basis.

Broken furnaces can have a significant impact on indoor air quality. For more information about how a broken furnace can contaminate the air in a home, contact our HVAC contractors at Air Zone Cooling & Heating today.
