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 running efficiently and is also an important part of improving 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 the majority of our times in our homes, so your air filter is on the front line for improving 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 greatest results.

The frequency you have to exchange 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 often. Follow your filter provider’s suggestion on how often to swap out your filter as the suggestion depends on a variety of factors in your home.

A dirty filter can also mean your system has to run harder, longer. This will cause your energy bills to rise and it can unfavorably impact the life of your system. Built up dust and system neglect are two of the leading causes of system failure. This system damage is entirely avoidable with routine maintenance, including regularly replacing your air filters.

Regularly swapping out your air filter is a simple thing to do and also an easy thing to forget about.
