Can Furnaces Run Without Filters?

Routine maintenance and cleaning is key to keeping your furnace running efficiently and properly. A furnace that has been well maintained pays big dividends for efficiency, comfort, and safety. Littleton Heating and Air Conditioning, located in Littleton, CO, is committed to providing customers with exceptional service and unsurpassed quality to ensure that all of our customers have a safe and comfortable living environment.

Understanding the Role of a Furnace

Your furnace is designed to circulate heated air throughout your home. To block harmful particles from entering your HVAC system, a filter is necessary. While your furnace will operate without a filter, it is likely to lead to expensive HVAC system repairs and poor air quality. Running your unit without a filter is an open invitation for all types of dirt and debris. Without a filter, dust will either accumulate in your unit, leading to contaminated ductwork, or it will remain in the air where it will be inhaled.

The Importance of Changing the Filter

If your furnace is not operating efficiently or you are experiencing poor air quality, Littleton Furnace repair technicians are trained to troubleshoot any performance issues and make necessary repairs to get your unit operating efficiently. We offer complete cleaning of your home’s duct system and we use equipment that will not interfere or negatively impact your lifestyle while performing our services. Serving the Denver Metro area since 1972, thousands of customers have come to trust our remarkable services.

Is It Time to Upgrade to a New Furnace?

If your furnace is older, it most likely operates very inefficiently compared to the modern systems that are available. An older furnace will cost you more to operate while increasing the risk of breakdown and repair. Energy savings will pay for the cost of a new unit in many circumstances. There are a variety of models and brands on the market and our team will help you decide what the best size and the most efficient choice is for you.
