What Happens if I Put My Furnace Filter in Backwards?

Is there such a thing as installing the furnace filter wrong?

morconnect - placing a filter properly

Usually, first-time homeowners would make this mistake since they do not know the ins and outs of their furnace system. However, even experienced homeowners may accidentally be damaging their furnaces with this common mistake. You might ask “It’s just a filter. How can I install it wrong?”. Surprisingly, there is a wrong way of installing your furnace filter. Both sides might look the same but filter manufacturers make the filters so that air goes in one direction efficiently. The fibers of the filter can let the air flow efficiently while trapping the harmful particles. The filters are important in letting your furnace work perfectly in your home. If you did not install them properly, it can cause damage to your furnace in the long run. Possible issues that can be caused by installing your furnace filter inaccurately include:

Efficiency takes a hit

Efficiency takes a hit - morconnect

The most common issue that you will have if you have an incorrectly installed filter is lowered efficiency. Since the filter is designed to be efficient when installed in one-way, installing it incorrectly will make your system inefficient. One side of your filter is actually more porous to let more air flow freely. So when a filter installed backward would mean your furnace has to work harder to deliver the results that you want. This will result in higher utility bills and it may lead to damage to your furnace. You won’t feel the effects of this at first but this inefficiency can build up and could result in a broken furnace system and more repairs.

Air Quality takes a dive

One side of your filter is used to trap harmful particles in your system. By installing your filter inaccurately, the system that removes the dust and other particles are collected will not work. This is a major health hazard for all residents and can be especially harmful to children. You can have an air purifier to help with the dust but this is only a temporary solution and will not improve the overall air quality in your home. Accumulated dust can result in making your furnace more inefficient over time and can also lead to the next bigger problem below.

You may find Mold Growing In Your Home

Increased dust in your home may lead to mold growing in your home. Dust is essentially food for mold. Mold only needs 3 things to grow, a food source (dust), humidity (a by-product of your HVAC system), and darkness (vents are dark). All 3 can be found if you have an improperly installed furnace filter. Mold is not only bad for your health but can also damage the structure of your home. It must be stressed that furnace filters are your first line of defense against this potential health hazard to your family.

Shortens your furnace’s lifespan

With the blocked airflow and the accumulated dust and/or mold, your furnace will work harder to maintain the comfort level that you want. This increased usage of your furnace can lead to short cycling. Short cycling basically means that your furnace is turning off by itself because it is overheated from the extra work it has to do. On older furnaces, this can be a fire hazard. Aside from being a fire hazard, short cycling can shorten the lifespan of your furnace system.  The shorter life span for your furnace means more repairs, less efficiency, and ultimately replacement of your furnace.

Correct Installation Of Your Filter

morconnect - Correct Installation Of Your Filter

Most filters usually come with an instruction sheet. If there is no instruction sheet present, the filter itself would have arrow indicators to point the direction of the airflow. The arrows must be pointed towards your furnace for the filter to be installed correctly. You can contact the experts at MorConnect to ensure that your filter will always be pointing in the right direction. When the technician arrives at your home you can watch how he installs your filter so that you can do it yourself next time. The MorConnect team is also happy to install your furnace filter every time too if you are not confident enough to install it yourself.


Having a correctly installed filter is crucial not only to your wallet but to your family’s health as well. The MorConnect team will be more than happy to help you if have any questions about your furnace or HVAC system. The team will also be happy to install your filters any time and to teach you how to correctly install them if you wish to do it yourself in the future.

Benefits of Installing Whole Home Water Filtration and Central Air Filtration Systems

Your health is your greatest asset. The kind of food you eat, the water you intake and your environment have a huge impact on your health as well as the health of your family members. Water filtration and central air filtration are smart solutions to improve the quality of the air within your home as well as the quality of water consumed in your home. Central air filtration systems and whole house water filtration systems play a vital role in cleaning the water and improving the indoor air quality.

Whole water filtration system

“A whole water filtration system is the perfect solution to ensure quality water throughout your home”, says Ali Mohammad of morConnect. Rather than managing the problems caused by hard water and water contaminants, it is better to use a home water filter that will give you peace of mind in addition to cleaner, better-tasting water.

  • It removes chemicals from clothing, and when chemicals are eliminated from water, the indoor air is not polluted.
  • Soft water makes clothing cleaner.
  • Water is both safe and healthy to drink.
  • Clean, filtered water is used in every water source in a home. An advanced home water filtration system acts like a water softener and helps reduce the amount of soap used to clean the body, dishes and clothes. Hard water contains minerals that block the action of soap ions, which reduces cleaning ability.
  • If your municipal water supply fails, your whole water filtration Brampton system protects your family from toxins.
  • With a home water filtration system, you will not be adding more rubbish to landfills and therefore contribute to protecting the environment.
  • If you are currently buying bottled water, you’ll make huge savings by installing a water filter at home.

 Central air filtration system

An average person spends a significant amount of their time indoors, and because of recent measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), people are spending more time inside their homes than ever before. It is equally important to take proactive steps to improve the quality of the air in your home. One easy way to safeguard your family’s health is by installing central air filtration in Ontario as it provides numerous benefits;

  • A whole-home air purifier cleans and eliminates harmful pollutants and toxins from the air. This is especially important for people who have respiratory problems.
  • Unlike portable air filters, whole-house air purifiers are connected to your home’s HVAC system or ductwork.
  • These systems are highly effective at filtering out tiny airborne particles that your HVAC filter can’t.
  • An air purification system will save you money compared to buying and running several portable air filters around your home.
  • These air filtration systems help to improve the condition of your HVAC system by preventing contaminants from building up on equipment and in the ductwork.

If you are looking for a whole home water filtration system and/or central air filtration in Ontario, morConnect specializes in providing the best water filtration solutions to suit your requirements. We provide smart solutions to live a better quality life, such as high-efficient, energy saving furnaces, air conditioners, whole home water filters, HEPA filters, tankless water heaters, smart home solutions, and R-60 attic insulation.

Stop! Read This Before You Insulate Your Attic This Winter

Saving Money with Attic Insulation

Notice how keeping warm seems to get more expensive every winter? Dialing down your thermostat or wearing more layers is a good start, but it just isn’t enough sometimes. The simplest way to cut down on your energy bill is to insulate your attic. It’s a small project you can finish in one weekend and it will save a lot of money in the long run. Insulating your attic can cut down on your energy bill by up to 50%. 

We’ve rounded up the important things you need to know before you insulate your attic.

Types of Insulations

There are 3 main types of attic insulations. Each insulation type has their own R-value (how effective they are). We will be covering each of them below with their advantages, R-value and cost.

Loose Fill

As the name implies, these are bags of insulation fibers that you blow in your attic. For this type of insulation, it’s best to rent special equipment to spread the insulation for best results. You can place it manually but it won’t be nearly as good as the equipment. Plus, that takes longer and is labor-intensive. 

Loose fill insulation is best for DIY-ers since this is fairly easy to install over the course of a weekend. You can use this to place on top of existing insulation since it can fill out the joints and spaces. It’s also good for irregularly shaped attics since this can fill in gaps easily. 

For loose fill insulation there are 3 types to choose from. We’ll list them below with the advantages.


The most common loose fill insulation. It does a great job at insulating your attic, but it rots and molds easily if exposed to moisture. This has an R-value of 3.2 – 3.8.


More lightweight and doesn’t rot like cellulose insulation.  However, you need to put in more to get the insulation you need. This is more fire resistant than cellulose insulation. This has an R-value of 2.2 – 2.7.

Mineral wool

Made from natural rock fibers and naturally fire resistant. This costs more than other other loose fill insulations though. It has an R-value of 3.0 – 3.3.

Most loose fill insulation costs around $600 depending on the size of your attic.

Blanket Insulation

Blanket Insulation or “batts” as it is called comes in rolls with various thickness and materials. They work best for homes with regularly shaped attics since you only need to cut the batts. You can add more layers to achieve the desired insulation level. This is also suitable for DIYers as this is also easy to install.

For batt insulation there are 4 types to choose from. We’ll list them below with the advantages.


The most common batt insulation around. It’s cheap but it can cause irritation to your skin or lungs and it’s less effective. This has an R-value of 2.9 – 4.3.


This won’t irritate your lungs or skin but few manufacturers make these. As with cellulose loose fill insulation, this rots and molds easily. It has an R-value of 3.7 – 3.8.

Mineral wool

Made from natural rock fibers and naturally fire resistant. Just like loose fill, it costs more than other batt insulation. This has an R-value of 3.0 – 3.3.


This blocks airflow and sound transmission the best, but this is the most expensive batt insulation choice. It has an R-value of 3.7 – 3.8.

Blanket insulation costs around $250 depending on the size of your attic. It may cost more if you have to regularly cut the insulation to fit it into irregular spaces.

Spray Foam Insulation

The most expensive of the 3 insulation types and also the best insulation type. This is best used for newly constructed homes for easy installation. This type of insulation however is not for DIYers as it would require professional handling of the materials. You may find these spray foam kits at your local hardware, but it’s best to leave at the hands of professionals. Spray foam insulation would initially set you back $2500 but it will pay you back in terms of savings on your energy bill. Spray foam insulation typically has an R-value of 5 – 6.

Steps To Prepare

If you want to install your insulation yourself you have to follow these steps to ensure that your installation goes smoothly. 

  1. Seal Air Leaks – The first step is to seal all air leaks in your ceiling and attic. If you have any leaks that allow warm air to escape your home, it’s going to make your insulation useless. You can use canned spray foam to seal in those nooks and crevices to prevent air from escaping.
  2. Fix Roof Leaks – The number one enemy of insulation is water. Damp environments breed mold that can damage your insulation. 
  3. Cover light fixtures – Insulation must never touch any type of electrical wiring unless it is rated safe for any insulation. Wiring that touches insulation is a potential fire hazard.
  4. Wear Protection – Wear goggles, gloves, masks and long sleeved shirts and pants to protect your lungs, eyes and skin from the insulation fibers. 
  5. Use Proper Lighting – Use proper lighting, like clip-on flashlights or lanterns to help you install your insulation in the dark.

Installation Tips

We’ve listed some handy installation tips that you can use to perfectly install your insulation.

  1. Work from the sides of your attic towards your attic hatch so you don’t step on your insulation.
  2. Shower after you install your insulation to remove loose fibers and launder your clothes immediately after 1 use.
  3. For loose fill insulation – make sure the depth of the insulation is spread evenly. Always get more than you think you’ve calculated. It’s better to have extra if you have gone short, so you don’t need to go to the store to buy more. You can add it to the existing insulation anyway.
  4. For batt insulation – place your layer of batts perpendicular to the old layer to prevent any spaces in the lower layer. Never place heavier batts (cotton, mineral) over lighter ones (fiberglass)
  5. Place insulation over your attic hatch to prevent the air from escaping there.


This is really most of what you need to know before installing insulation in your attic. If you’re thinking of converting your attic into a living or storage space someday however, you just have to hire the professionals to have your attic insulated with spray foam. It provides the best R-value and the bang for your buck. You will need less space for the insulation ensuring that you can use your attic as storage or an additional room in the future.

What Makes a Smart Home “Smart”?

First, it was smartphones, then came smartwatches. Now even our homes are smart. But just what makes a home smart?

From speakers to thermostats to locks to lightbulbs, homeowners have no shortage of choices when it comes to adding smart devices to their homes. The problem with creating a smart home is that it’s easy to add a bunch of smart devices to your home but more difficult to have those devices communicate with one another. Without that communication, however, it’s difficult to call a home truly smart.

Furthermore, having to use different apps to control smart devices can be more work for a homeowner who anticipates that these devices will make their lives easier than their “dumb” counterparts. While a voice-controlled speaker may be able to turn on some devices, their compatibility is limited. Why bother unlocking a Bluetooth lock if it doesn’t interface with any other device in your home?

On top of this, some of those devices are more form than function. For instance, color-changing LED bulbs that respond to voice might be fun, but you certainly wouldn’t argue that they’re necessary. The industry is still young enough that consumers are impressed enough to purchase these superfluous devices, and manufacturers know they can appeal to buyers with buzz words rather than practical solutions to our everyday concerns.

So how do you move from a barely-connected network of devices that have been cobbled together clunkily to an integrated smart home full of devices that work efficiently and make your life easier? And is it possible for smart devices to cater to our lives rather than the other way around.

With the current state of technology, a smart home hub is necessary. These hubs connect to every smart device and can even reduce strain on the wireless network. Residents save time and effort by logging into a single app to control all of their smart devices, whether they’re at home or away.

Fortunately, hardware and software manufacturers are considering this. Compatibility and remote operation are increasingly possible. As this progress continues, smart devices will integrate even more seamlessly into our lives, producing truly smart homes. Perhaps someday these homes will be able to anticipate our needs rather than simply allowing the user to control the devices within them.

If you’re interested in incorporating smart home technology, Ali Mohamed and morConnect can help! They have a variety of financing options available. Learn more on their website. A recent way morConnect has helped serve their clients is by offering 1000 free Google Minis during the COVID 19 crisis. These devices will help people stay connected to their loved ones during these difficult times.

Three Ways Technology is Changing The Next Generation of Smart Homes

As technology continues to become more efficient, forward-thinking homeowners are trying to find ways to integrate technology and automation in their homes so that they are better prepared to deal with the substantial shifts that are happening to society, the environment, and the economy.

Indeed, housing experts anticipate that the next generation of “smart” homes will be outfitted with a range of technologies that will make home living easier, safer, more convenient, and more comfortable than ever before. The following technologies and trends will completely revolutionize the next generation of smart homes for homeowners. 

Finding Ways to Integrate New Technologies

Remember those days of having to look through a peephole to see who was knocking at your door? In the next generation of smart homes, those days will likely be finished, as new homes will be outfitted with high-resolution front door cameras that have built-in facial recognition software. These front door cameras will be ideal for smart homeowners who live in fast-paced cities who have delivery drivers, postal service workers, and other people dropping packages off at their front door.

According to technologists, smart home owners will be able to connect their facial recognition software with their door lock security system. This will allow different members of a family to quickly and safely enter their home without needing to find their keys.

The Importance of 5G in Smart Homes

Another new technology that will play a vital role in the next generation of smart homes is 5G. 5G is a wireless communication technology that will allow the smart homes of the future to connect with the rest of the world more efficiently. 

5G will be crucial for future generations of homeowners because the technology completely removes the need for wiring for things like televisions, telephones, and the Internet.

Finding Ways to Power Smart Homes 

Skeptics of smart homes are probably wondering, “All of this technology sounds great, but how will there be enough electricity for all of these devices?” In the next generation, when neighborhoods are full of smart homes, each neighborhood will have its own direct energy resource station that is connected to the homes in the neighborhood. This system will be customized to the different energy needs of the residents living in the community, helping cut down on needless utility costs for smart home owners.

Are you interested in integrating more technology into your smart home? morConnect can help! Ali Mohamed, the Vice President, wants to keep the residents of Ontario and all of Canada safe by using Smart technology in homes across the country. They offer a variety of financing options so you can find the right fit for you and your home. 

At morConnect, we are all about utilizing the latest technology to keep our clients safe, happy, and comfortable.

Making Your Smart Home Environmentally Sustainable

Smart homes have taken the housing market by storm. All over the United States, homeowners and home builders are intrigued by the idea of automated lighting, customized temperature settings, innovative appliances, and cloud-controlled entertainment systems. But smart homes don’t just offer unique comforts and innovative technical features. In essence, most of the smart technology found in today’s homes is also ecologically friendly, making smart homes a popular choice for eco-conscious home buyers. 

From a home renovation standpoint, smart technology’s ability to conserve energy and promote environmental and economic sustainability is why so many people are considering adding smart technology to their homes.

Smart Technology Reduces Energy Usage

One reason smart homes have become so popular is that homes outfitted with smart energy technology use less energy than homes with traditional furnaces. 

According to the Energy Information Administration, homes with smart energy technology installed save on average up to $2,000 per year on energy bills when compared to homes that are outfitted with older heating systems. 

Homeowners who want to make their living spaces more ecologically sustainable should install a smart thermostat in their home. Smart thermostats can be programmed to fit in with your daily routine, meaning that you set different temperatures for during the day and for overnight. 

Just as importantly, you can customize a smart thermostat to keep the temperature of your home lower when you are not at home, which costs you less money and uses less energy overall.

Investing in Smart Lights Mitigates Forgetfulness

Although it seems minor, leaving the lights on when you aren’t home adds up. Instead of accidentally leaving your lights on while you’re sleeping (or when you leave for work), install smart lighting in your home that is programmed on a timer to turn off at certain times of day. If you’re a more hands-on person, there are also smart lighting systems that can be controlled via a smartphone app.

Either way, keeping the lights off with smart technology is an excellent way to make your smart home more sustainable.

Saving Water Helps Save the Planet

A study conducted by the USGS Water Census suggests that if all American households outfitted their homes with water-saving technology, water use within the country would decrease by approximately 30%. This equates to about 5.4 billion gallons of water per day.

Home renovation experts recommend installing water-saving faucets, showerheads, and toilets in your home if you want to save both money and water.

Smart Home Trends For 2020

As technology becomes more and more advanced, it is becoming a part of many people’s everyday lives. A growing trend in architecture is working with technology to create “Smart Homes” that can make homes more convenient for their owners. morConnect’s goal is to help you feel more secure and comfortable in your home. 

Here are some of the Smart Home movements that Ali Mohammad, Vice President of the company, predicts will become more and more popular in 2020.

Domestic Robots

For many people, their first introduction to household robots was through the Roomba and other automated vacuuming machines. However, companies are starting to expand into a variety of other machines that can mow the lawn, clean, and cook. Humanoid robots with a simulated personality and range of functions are still decades away, but manufacturers are using robot technology to assist with all sorts of chores.

Healthcare Technology

As the Boomer generation continues to age, more and more companies are starting to focus on healthcare for homes. This helps reduce the workload for doctors and ensure seniors are taken care of even if they do not have many children or a robust retirement portfolio. Many devices are wearable items that monitor health levels and let people get emergency care when necessary. These smartwatches can be linked to medication dispensers, refrigerators, and other home appliances to make it easier to stay healthy.

More Standardization

A common need for many homeowners is the ability to integrate multiple devices in a single home. With less consumers interested in purchasing all their items from a single, exclusive brand, companies are realizing they need to offer more standardization if they want to attract customers. Major companies like Google, Amazon, and Apple are working together to create standards that let a variety of technologies and systems work together.

Technology That Learns

Smart technology is actually starting to live up to its name with technology that is programmed to change and grow. As home appliances get more data on their users, they can adapt their behavior to better assist users. This is already prevalent in some smart thermostat systems, but in the future people can expect to see it more in refrigerators, security systems, and more. Technology with AI and machine learning may be particularly helpful in home hubs that control other appliances.

5 Ways Smart Home Technology Can Enhance Home Showings

Climate change and environmental consciousness is one of the most defining features of this epoch; smart home technology, which helps homeowners lower their carbon footprints and energy consumption, have become one of the most in-demand and sought-after features among the real estate market.

In 2020, home buyers want to know that the property they’re purchasing will be able to help them live greener lives, give back to the Earth through everyday actions and help them save money on utilities.

In addition, smart home technology can be used to improve showings and close deals sooner. Knowing how to effectively demonstrate smart home technology during a showing can help both agents and independent sellers alike.

More Showings Through VR

Virtual reality showings are gaining popularity, allowing prospective buyers to explore a home in its entirety without ever stepping foot on the property. A VR headset installed at your office could help buyers preview multiple listings in a single day, saving them money on transport and not interrupting the seller’s schedule.

Greater Showing Flexibility With Smart Locks

Smart locks are now the most popular form of home security systems. These locks can be monitored and activated from a distance using mobile applications, which provides a greater sense of control to owners. Sellers and agents can also utilize these locks to their advantage; rather than having to be home when a showing takes place, sellers can remotely lock and unlock the door for agents who are giving a tour.

The Perfect Temperature With Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats also provide remote control from thousands of miles away; agents and sellers can ensure a house is an optimal temperature before buyers ever walk through the door. In addition to improving showing conditions, a smart thermostat is a responsive piece of technology that can be highly enticing to buyers.

Create Ambiance With Smart Speakers

Built-in smart speakers can provide a source of entertainment and convenience for buyers. From the showing standpoint, they can be used to play relaxing music that instantly puts buyers at ease. Smart speakers can even be equipped with motion sensor technology that causes music to play the minute people enter a room.

To get extra crafty, narrations of the home’s greatest features could be recorded and programmed to play upon entry.

Set the Scene With Smart Lighting

Smart lights save money and can be fine-tuned with just a few taps on a smartphone. For a showing, they can be adjusted to capture the perfect mood and highlight the home’s best features.

Most importantly, a smart home technology showing should include plenty of hands-on interaction from buyers. From learning voice commands to activating certain features, the best selling point is always a memorable experience.

Smart home technology has the potential to attract more potential buyers to your home when it’s on the market.

2020 Updates for the Smart Home Market

Over the years, MorConnect has discovered that the smart home market is constantly changing with new products, and even with security challenges scaring a few people away from the market, diversity has grown from adversity. It is their goal to help educate people on smart home trends to ensure a more secure and comfortable future.

Here are a few projected earnings and examples for the smart home market in 2020.

Smart Appliances Deliver the Biggest Profit

Consumers are expected to spend $21.5 billion in 2020 on devices that can link up with mobile devices.

This includes connecting with washers, dryers, refrigerators, and other appliances to gain remote control and a bit of fine-tuning that doesn’t have to be built into the machine with switches. It’s cost savings for manufacturers and customers.

$19.4 billion is expected to go to security systems. Smart cameras and smart locks are expected to be the leading products, since they’re easy to install and deliver tangible benefits.

Tied with benefits is the need for security, which adds brand variety. Due to exploited Internet of Things (IoT) devices, people have to make a tough choice between gaining better advantages versus being potentially exposed if proper measures aren’t taken.

For consumers, this means knowing what usually goes wrong and what manufacturers can advertise as a fix. For the most part, this means having the ability to change passwords and patch software for vulnerabilities.

Smart Energy Management Changes

$7.2 billion income is expected in 2020 from energy management solutions. This includes monitoring and management hubs that provide whole home coverage of power usage.

Lights, heating, air conditioning, appliances, and personal electronics, are usually tethered to these monitoring systems, making it easy to see how much power is being spent. This drives savings, and is vital to both individual and business customers.

Home owners aren’t the only clients here. Power utilities also resell power management suites and provide smart home power meters, which are often connected to their systems.

Smart home devices for utility companies allows easier billing management, and it also helps power utilities service customers better. By figuring out where certain power leaks, failure, and strange overages happens, they can provide faster fixes.

The smart home category will continue to grow as people look for better ways to control electronics and digital devices in their homes. For more information on the market, contact a smart home technology consultant.
