This spring perhaps you are planning to add a porch, make a fence, install a mail box post or plant a tree. The danger of digging is that you might damage underground utilities such as electric cables or water lines or gas lines. Before you start digging, call the phone number 811. Tell them your address and what your plans are. Then the location of underground utilities will be marked with small flags. Avoid working in these locations and you can prevent an expensive disaster.
There are 3 main reasons to change your furnace filter.
1. You are spending money for the gas or electric bill, so you want that heat to go easily to the rooms of your house. Changing the filter enables the heated air to move more easily.
2. If you don't change the filter and the heat remains near the furnace, then the parts of the furnace over heat and break sooner. These are expensive repairs.
3. Installing a new filter may catch more dust and make the air better to breath.
