Everything You Need to Know About Air Filters

Air Quality

One of the most important parts of good HVAC maintenance is swapping out your air filters. Your air filter keeps your system operating efficiently and is also an important part of boosting and maintaining your indoor air quality. The EPA has released that the air inside your home can be 2-5 times more polluted than the air in highly industrialized cities. We spend quite a bit of our times indoors, so your air filter is on the front line for boosting indoor air quality. So what else do we need to realize when it comes to air filters?

Filter Replacement

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

The frequency you have to replace your filter is settled by a number of factors. If you have pets in your house or a lot of guests and occupants, you’ll need to change your filter more frequently. Follow your filter provider’s advice on how often to change your filter as the recommendation depends on a host of factors in your home.

A dirty filter may also cause your system to run harder, longer. This will cause your utility bills to go up and it can unfavorably impact the life of your system. Built up dirt and system neglect are two of the leading causes of system failure. This system damage is completely avoidable with regular maintenance, including regularly replacing your air filters.

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