Living green doesn’t have to be complicated, but it does take commitment to the regular performance of simple acts that keep our energy systems working at peak efficiencies. One of the simplest and most important of these activities is maintaining a clean furnace air filter. A clean furnace air filter allows fresh air to circulate through the furnace efficiently. If the filter is clogged with dirt and dust, your furnace works harder, meaning higher utility bills for you and increased chance of parts breaking. In addition, when furnace air filters are left in place too long and not cleaned or changed it can also have a detrimental effect on your health. KenJiva can help you avoid the direct and indirect costs associated with deferred maintenance of furnace air filters. We use pleated polyester furnace filters for our replacement filters in the ECO FRIENDLY bundle and with our Preventative Maintenance Service offering. These high quality filters last approximately 3 months, and are 3-4 times more efficient at increasing your indoor air quality (IAQ) than the cheap throw away filters commonly sold at most hardware stores.
