When the temperature drops, most of us will drop out of view as we look for warmer environments to spend most of our time. For many of us, our venue of choice will be our own homes. There we know we can drink all the warm tea we want, sip on hot soup and crank the heat as high as we like.
While these are all very comfortable ways to spend time away from the cold, one of them could potentially be making us sick. Our furnace is great for keeping us warm, but they can also work against us if we’re not careful. By not inspecting and replacing our furnace filters regularly, we run the risk of having a furnace that sucks in dirty air—thick with debris, dust and other pollutants—and then pumping it throughout our home where we’re quick to breath it in.
Obviously, there are enough health risks that come with winter as it is. We don’t need one more, especially from our beloved furnaces. Fortunately, there’s an easy fix that takes no time at all. Air filters for your furnace can be purchased for very little and installed immediately. As a result, you can start cranking your heat all over again without having to worry that you’re making things harder on your body.
