The most common nugget of wisdom we impart to our customers to help them help their furnaces is to regularly change the furnace filter. This filter is usually located on the HVAC cabinet at the point where the return air ducts connect to where the blower is located. The filter does the job of blocking debris coming through the return air ducts so it won’t enter the cabinet and contaminant the furnace, blower, and other parts of the HVAC system. This filter isn’t self-cleaning, and after one to three months the congestion in the filter will start to cause problems and even lead to damage to the furnace.
