Everything You Need to Know About Air Filters

One of the largest parts of correct HVAC maintenance is changing your air filters. Your air filter keeps your system running efficiently and is also a big part of increasing 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 commercial cities. We spend quite a bit of our times in our homes, 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 most basic way to tell you out how often to exchange 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 common rule is every 1-2 months for the greatest results.

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

A clogged filter may also mean your system has to run harder, longer. This will cause your monthly bills to increase and it can negatively impact the life of your system. Built up dirt and system neglect are two of the main causes of system failure. This system damage is entirely avoidable with regular 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 forget about.
