You need you fully understand your heating system. Understanding basic functioning is important so that in case of any malfunctioning, you can make an estimate about what could have gone wrong with the system.
If the weather in your area is cold throughout the year, filters need to be changed more rapidly. But if the cold weather lasts for a couple of months, change the filter at least twice a year. If you want to use cheap filters then go for the disposable ones. Using the same filter for years causes dust to gather inside the filter and hinders its performance. Further maintenance includes proper cleaning of the outer system and the area around it. If dust is gathered around it, it will deter the performance of the system. The best way of cleaning is to shut the system off and clean it with a light brush.
Different boilers use different techniques for heating. Some use water while others use steam. In some systems, air is used to provide heating. It is moved through all the ducts and provides heat in the house. In countries, where weather is hot, heat pumps are used to provide cooling in the house by removing the hot air. The same system provides heating in cold weather by reversing its mechanism. A local heating company also offers electrical heating system that works with electricity. But in countries where electricity is expensive or short in demand, these furnaces will not be of much use and using them will only incur more costs. Each type of furnace has its own merits and demerits. Oil using systems are faster but the oil is not of such a good quality. So, before arriving at a decision, all the facts and figures should be kept in mind. The costs of every system should not be ignored.
