Such an easy thing to do but arguably the least often thing done in many homes: changing out furnace filters, especially when putting your home on the Calgary real estate market.

Simply put, do it. When you accept an offer and it comes time for a house inspection, there are many home inspectors that look at a furnace as an overall indicator as to the type of upkeep/maintenance that a home has received over the years or in recent time.

If the furnace filter is dirty, some Calgary home inspectors will even take it a step further and tell the buyer that the furnace may have had to work harder to move air through a dirty filter, thereby shortening the furnace's life expectancy. Many a Calgary home buyer has been scared away from buying a home simply due to a dirty furnace filter.

Give your furnace a new filter. (A quality filter can be good for your family's lungs, too.)
