What Happens When You Don't Clean Your Furnace Filter

If you don't check your air filter regularly, it can become clogged to the point where air can no longer pass through it. This can cause serious issues, as the lack of air flow will trap heat in the system. Even if you have a filter in your oven, it can still become blocked if it hasn't been changed in a while. A dirty oven filter can prevent air from flowing properly through the oven and cause it to shut off.

If the filter is left on for too long, it may become so clogged that it passes into the HVAC system. This not only means that the air isn't being filtered properly, but it can also be a fire hazard in the ventilation. It's important to check the boiler filter once a month, especially during winter when the boiler is working hard to keep your home warm. In recent years, manufacturers have designed filters that use their heating and air system to remove microscopic particles such as dust, pollen, pet dander, bacteria, plant spores and mold, and even smoke from the air in your home.

If you have an immediate problem with your boiler, Home Climates can help. If you install a new filter but don't turn on the heater or air conditioner until a month or two later, the filter should be relatively clean since the system hasn't let air through it. However, if it's not cleaned or replaced every few months, it will become too clogged for air to flow through. Your boiler depends heavily on the air filter found in the air return duct.

This protects the boiler and keeps the air cleaner since the HVAC system does not recirculate allergens to the air. In addition to changing the filters, you should also check your oven to make sure everything is working properly. Your oven's air filter is made of a fiber mesh that is narrow enough to capture dirt but loose enough to allow air to flow through it. Some consumers try to clean their disposable air filters for heating, ventilation and air conditioning by shaking them out or trying to remove pet hair, dust and dirt.

However, this won't be effective and can cause more problems than it solves. As the oven is turned on, overheated, turned off and then turned back on again, the voltage will eventually cause the entire system to break down. To prevent this from happening and maintain the health of your oven, you should change your oven filter every few months.
