What to Do If Your Heater Is Full of Dust

One of the major causes for heaters malfunctioning is the accumulation of dust within the heater. Over time, dust and debris collect in the interior of the furnace, infiltrating the filter, blower, and the burners. A dusty furnace won’t work efficiently, the air it pumps out won’t be as warm as it could be, and it can cause your furnace to break down over time. 

In today’s post, we’re going to explain what you should do if you’re faced with this problem. 

Check and clean your air filter regularly. Your filter is your heater’s primary defense against buildup of dirt and debris. We recommend that you clean your filter at least once per month. If it’s damaged, you should get it replaced with a new one. 

Vacuum the interior of the furnace. Turn off the furnace, open the front panels of the furnace, and use the vacuum’s snorkel to suck up any dust or dirt within the furnace. 

Schedule a maintenance check. One of the easiest ways to ensure your heating unit is in top shape is to hire a professional to check its health.
