The first thing that you can do for your furnace is replace the filter. Every furnace should have a filter that removes dust, hair, and pet dander.
However, it can become clogged over time. This can lead to worse air quality and more expensive heating bills. Thankfully, this is a simple fix. All you have to do is swap out the old filter with one of the exact same size. Next thing you know, the air will be better and the heater will be working more efficiently.
