A furnace transfers or brings in air from outside into our house. This air is modified by the furnace according to our requirement. Like if we need our room to be warm then we can change the furnace to circulate warm air into our room or else if we need our room to be cool then we can modify and transfer cold air into the room. However, this air consists of lots of dust particles, mold spores, hairs, bacteria, virus and a lot of things that come from the outside air and to prevent these from affecting our health we need a furnace air filter that will prevent the germs from entering our room. These filter furnaces also help in improving the quality of the air that circulates in our room to make us healthy.

After using these filter furnaces for very long time, a person needs to clean it because while filtering the dust particles, a lot of particles may have clogged with the filter so the furnace will require more force to propel the air through the filter as a result the efficiency of both the furnace as well as the filter decreases and sometimes it may be even possible that the furnace, as well as the filter, will be damaged in due course of time or else it may so happen that the furnace will burn by catching fire.
