How often should I change my filters?

The Beautiful Summer weather is quickly coming to an end as we approach the end of September.  You probably had your A/C running majority of the summer but now with the crisp Fall weather coming, it’s almost heating season!

You know what one of the most important things you can do to maintain your HVAC System? Changing your filters! How often should you change them? Let’s find out!

When deciding when to change your filter consider the following:

  1. What type of filter are you using?
  2. Do you have pets? (If so, how many?)
  3. IAQ (Indoor Air Quality) in the home.
  4. What type of house is it? How many people are living in the home?

For the most basic air filters, you can usually change them after about 30-60 days. If you have severe allergies, it is recommended that you change the more frequently.

If you have pets, then you will be changing them more often than those without animals.

Regardless of the situation in your home, this is something that must be done on a regular basis. If you don’t change your filters regularly, your family could be breathing in harmful chemicals such as Mold or bacteria. Look at the above picture and make sure your filters never look like that!
