Check That Filter!
I noticed my furnace blower was a little noisy this morning while I was working out, so I turned off the blower and yanked out the air filter and... it was due for a change. With 2 dogs in our house we seem to need to replace these every month or two. I think not replacing these filters has led to a burned our motor at least twice for our household over the past 12 years. I usually buy about 3-4 at a time when I'm at Home Depot or the hardware store. Make it a routine to check these at home and at work (we have 4 furnaces at my office), so you don't go without heat or air conditioning this year.
