Most people understand that having clean air ducts in their Columbus, NC home helps to improve their health, but they may not realize the impact it has on heater efficiency. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), air circulates through the ducts of your heating and cooling system five to seven times a day. This air contains the dust, pollen, bacteria and other substances that you can’t see but are always present. Although your furnace filter catches a lot of the waste from the air, it can build up over time and have a major impact on the efficiency of your furnace. This results in higher heating bills as well as a furnace that may not keep you warm.
