Everything You Need to Know About Air Filters

One of the biggest parts of proper 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 the majority of our times inside, so your air filter is on the front line for boosting indoor air quality. So what else do we need to understand when it comes to air filters?

Filter Replacement

The easy 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 general rule is every 1-2 months for the highest results.

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

A clogged filter can also result in your system running harder, longer. This will cause your utility bills to rise and it can unfavorably 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 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 cue.
