Cleaning and replacing your furnace filter is one of the easiest ways to protect and maintain your heating system. Furnace filters are inexpensive, but investing in a quality filter will improve the lifespan of your furnace. You have three options when shopping for a furnace filter. The least expensive filter is made of disposable fiberglass that is cost effective, but won’t provide much protection. Pleated filters are made from dense mesh that allows them to filter more effectively. Top-of-the-line filters are passive electrostatic filters that have a dirt attracting charge.

If your furnace’s air filter is dirty, the unit will use more energy. A dirty air filter will also circulate unclean air through your home, which can trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. Failing to replace the filter can eventually lead to furnace repair. In most furnaces, the filter is located in the top half of the unit, where the air intake is. When you change the filter, it’s a good idea to write the date on it so you know when it’s time for replacement.

When you schedule an audit from Blue Dot of Maryland, you will receive vital information about how to reduce your heating and cooling bills, learn how to make your home more energy efficient and take the first steps towards improving the quality and consistency of your energy use. Let’s take a closer look at some common issues an audit from Blue Dot can help identify and address:
High Energy Bills
If you have noticed that your home energy bill seems high, chances are there are areas where your energy efficiency could be improved. When you schedule a professional home energy audit, an energy auditing professional will diagnose the efficiency of your energy usage with sophisticated tools. Equipment such as infrared cameras and draft measuring devices will detect your problem areas. Once you know where you need improvement, you will be able to make the necessary repairs and changes that will lower your energy bill.
When heating or cooling a home, oftentimes there are places that seem to resist temperature control. Drafty areas such as second floor rooms needn’t be colder than the rest of the house. When you schedule an audit for your home, these drafty areas will be professionally assessed. With the right equipment and knowledge, the chilly parts of your home will become professional and inviting.
Poor Air Quality
The indoor air quality of your home can greatly affect your overall health and wellbeing. Even if there is no noticeable dust or debris in the air, your indoor air quality can still be poor. When you receive a home audit, this can be a great opportunity to improve the air quality in your home. When the auditor inspects your HVAC system, he or she will test your indoor air quality and can replace the air filters throughout your house.
