Everything You Need to Know About Air Filters

One of the biggest parts of good 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 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 most basic 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 check your filter’s cleanliness every day, so a good rule of thumb is every 1-2 months for the best results.

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

A clogged filter may also cause your system to run harder, longer. This will cause your energy bills to increase and it can adversely 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 totally avoidable with annual maintenance, including regularly swapping out your air filters.
