Everything You Need to Know About Air Filters

One of the largest parts of correct HVAC maintenance is replacing your air filters. Your air filter keeps your system working efficiently and is also an important part of increasing and maintaining your indoor air quality. The EPA has shown that the air inside your home can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air in highly commercial cities. We spend a lot of our times inside, so your air filter is on the front line for increasing indoor air quality. So what else do we need to understand when it comes to air filters?

Filter Replacement

The simple way to tell you out how often to swap your filter would be, whenever it’s dirty. Of course, we don’t want you to have to take a look at your filter’s cleanliness every day, so a good rule of thumb is every 1-2 months for the greatest results.

The frequency you have to replace your filter is decided by a variety of factors. If you have pets in your house or a lot of guests and occupants, you’ll need to swap out your filter more regularly. Follow your filter provider’s suggestion on how often to replace your filter as the recommendation depends on a number of factors in your home.

A clogged filter may also result in your system running harder, longer. This will cause your monthly bills to rise and it can negatively impact the life of your system. Built up grime and system neglect are two of the top causes of system failure. This system damage is completely avoidable with annual maintenance, including regularly swapping out your air filters.

Regularly changing your air filter is a simple thing to do and also an easy thing to ignore. If it’s been a while since you’ve checked the status of your filter, consider this post your reminder.
